History

St. Wendelin’s crèche (nativity scene), donated and built by members of the parish.

St. Wendelin Parish was founded in 1870 when area Catholics purchased a former Presbyterian church for worship.  The current church, completed in 1906, is the third church to serve area Catholics (the first having grown too small and the second having succumbed to fire in 1905).

The likeness of the saint is depicted in a recently commissioned painting hanging in the church’s vestibule.  Statues of the Holy Family and the Risen Christ take place of prominence in the sanctuary, and small, but intimate Stations of the Cross dot the nave.
