Old St. Engelbert’s Roman Catholic Church

Rechristened St. Elizabeth, Mother of John (the Baptist), St. Engelbert was a German national church.

I usually associate the English Gothic Revival with Presbyterian or Lutheran churches, and it’s interesting to see a Roman Catholic church of this style.

The compressed Gothic arches form the front portal.

“For the greater glory of God, the Most Reverend J(ohn) J(oseph) Glennon, Doctor of Divinity, placed me (the cornerstone) with rites in honor of St. Engelbert on July 18 in the year of our Lord 1926. Reverend A.J. von Braun, pastor.”
