St. Augustine Hosting Open House on Sunday

Staff Writer

St. Augustine Catholic Church in Minster will host an open house this Sunday, Sept. 18, from 2 to 4 p.m. The public is invited to attend.  Organized in conjunction with the Auglaize County Historical Society, the event is being hosted in conjunction with Ohio Open Doors, an effort of the Ohio HIstory Connection in honor of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

 The open house will allow visitors a close-up look at the historic church, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  The original church was constructed in 1848, with major renovations in 1874-76 and 1922.  It is part of the  Land of the Cross-Tipped Churches.
Visitors may enter the building from the front or from the parking lot to the rear (minimizing the steps).
