History

St. Michael Catholic Church was established as a Mission in 1888 by Father Edward Brucklin, who became the first resident priest in 1892. An earlier frame structure was replaced by the current stately sanctuary in 1913 under the direction of Father Joseph Szymanski, who served the congregation for 42 years. The imposing edifice was constructed of Elgin brick by Italian and Mexican craftsmen directed by contractors L. M. and J. C. Dielmann of San Antonio. The Gothic revival architectural style reflects the central European heritage of the Czechoslovakian and German settlers. Built at a cost of about $50,000, the church is 60 x 146 feet with the interior vaulted ceiling being 68 feet high. It comfortably seats about 750 people and is furnished throughout with beautiful stained glass windows. The two large bells were donated by parishioners and blessed by Bishop J.W. Shaw of San Antonio in 1914.

Repairs and additions that have been made to the church throughout the years include roof repairs and mesh wire on the windows (1941), repair of the steeple and roof (1946), a new pipe organ (1948), extensive repairs of the roof and tower frame, new lighting, and other interior and exterior work (1954), air conditioning (1969), repair of the spire and roof and waterproofing of masonry (1973), and extensive interior and exterior work (1988 and 2012).

This beautiful church holds an official Texas Historical Marker and proudly represents both the past and present community.
