Inscription.  This Church (the third on this site) was dedicated in 1875. Designed by Franz George Himpler in German Gothic architectural style. The renovated church interior is a combination of the original concept of an open German hall church with a dynamic fusion of Vatican ll liturgical elements. "I wanted this church to be as beautiful as possible that the poor, of whom there are many among us, might also have a beautiful home they could call their own." Msgr. Franz Goller, Pastor (1858-1910)
