Did you know that the bricks used in constructing the church in 1864-65 were HAND MADE at a clay pit on the Gregor Herberger farm located on Stahley Road? He was the son of Johann Herberger whose farm on "The Transit" was used for Mass by Fr. John Neumann before there was a church building.. #ThrowbackThursday #StMarys175
