Who We Are
Our Lady of the Snow’s Catholic Church is devoted to serving all God’s holy people, regardless of race, color, or creed, and runs a Catholic school. The original old wood frame church established in 1885 burned down by accident and was rebuilt with new stone in 1907. It’s still standing today. Reverend Patrick Shortt was raised in Ireland and attended seminary school at St. Johns in Waterford, Ireland. He was ordained on June 12, 1966, and came to the United States 2 months later to the diocese in Jefferson City. Reverend Shortt has served in a number of churches over the years. Call him to schedule an appointment for baptisms or marriage (at least 6 months notice).
