Our Lady of the Snows Church

Catholic Church & School

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. Click here for the History and origin of our parish.
