Inside St. Augustine, The Oldest Catholic Church in Nevada with the only surviving Kilgen organ. Did we see a ghost? See for yourself at:

With a glint in her eye and an infectious laugh, the lady at the Trading Post who stamped our Highway 50 booklets continued on with her story about the abandoned buildings in Austin, Nevada. The owner of the Main Street Shops who had to sell because of her son’s illness also owned the St. Augustine’s Catholic Church. She had deeded the church to the St. Augustine’s Cultural Center for them to renovate and restore for its use. The shopkeeper told us that it was abandoned for now and that we should go take a look.

Typical of many old mining towns, the building was situated on a steep hill so Sar decided to stay in the car and take a nap. Lex and I huffed and puffed our way up the road to see an imposing red brick church with a beautiful tall white steeple. The roof was at quite an angle and made an acute V-shape against the blue sky. The brick walls are 20 inches (50.8 cm) thick. To pay for the angular roof, tickets were sold for the midnight Christmas Eve mass in 1866. Enough tickets were purchased to finish the building in the same year.

St. Augustine Catholic Church is the oldest Catholic Church in Nevada and served the numerous mining communities in Utah as well as Nevada. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We looked around the property and saw evidence of the renovation going on. I began to peek inside one of the large windows when I saw a figure in the corner of my eye. I froze with my fingers locked tightly around the camera! Was that a ghost? A burglar?

ST. MARYS, Pa. — After more than 160 years of service in the area, the Benedictine Sisters of Elk County have announced they will close their monastery, the nation‚„s oldest Benedictine convent. The sisters said the decision was made Monday to move forward with plans to close St. Joseph Monastery, located on Church Street in St. Marys. The sisters said the decision came following ‚“three years of prayerful study.There are currently 17 sisters at the monastery, ranging from 58 to 91-years-old.Monastery administrator Sister Rita Brink said a number of factors, including aging members, declining membership and facility problems, made it impossible for them to keep the convent open.‚“The decision to work towards closure has been made, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions that need to be dealt with and processed,‚ Brink said. ‚“One of which is what will become of these buildings and this space.‚The property is owned by the St. Vincent Arch-abbey, where St. Vincent‚„s College in Latrobe, Westmoreland County, is located. Each of the remaining sisters is looking into other Benedictine communities where they can transfer their vows. The convent was founded when three Benedictine women from Germany settled in the St Marys area in 1852, and began offering opportunities for faith development and education in the then-newly settled community.Following a fire in November 1934 that destroyed the town‚„s hospital, the sisters allowed their academy to be used as a temporary hospital. The sisters played a lead role in helping to raise funds to rebuild the hospital.The sisters said they feel blessed by the generous support, appreciation and friendship of people in the Elk County area where they have shared their lives.There was no date set for when the monastery would be officially closed.

World’s Oldest Protestant Church Moravian Christmas Eve Barn

Views:9135|Rating:4.55|View Time:9:39Minutes|Likes:10|Dislikes:1
The Moravian Church, the World’s oldest Protestant denomination, holds its Christmas Eve in the Delaware County, Ohio, Bicentennial Barn. The Moravian Church is 550 years old in the year 2007. It began before Martin Luther.

The Moravian Church’s religious heritage began in the 14th century. The movement was started by Jan Hus, who objected to some of the practices of the Roman Catholic Church. He wanted to steer the church in Bohemia and Moravia to the simpler practices of early Christianity.

The movement was successful for a while, but eventually forced to be under the authority of Rome. Hus was burned at the stake. Within a few years of his martyrdom, some of his followers became independently organized into the Bohemian Brethren, which began in Kunvald, Bohemia, in 1457.

These Protestants had rebelled against Rome more than a hundred years before Martin Luther. Moravia or Bohemia are provinces of the Czech Republic. Worldwide there are three-quarters of a million Moravians. They are a mainstream Protestant denomination. In the US., the Moravians are often found in Pennsylvania, especially Bethlehem, and North Carolina. The first Moravian settlement in the US was in Savannah, Georgia, in 1735.

The Christmas Eve ceremony for the Columbus, Ohio, Promise Church was held in a barn to commemorate Christ’s birth in a manger of a barn.

The Delaware County Bicentennial barn is over 100-years old and on a family farm of approximately 200-years. It was painted as a project to commemorate Ohio’s 200 th birthday, bicentennial.

Christmas 20007 was also the date of the full moon. The moon was setting at sunrise (which shows that it is truly full) as seen at the end of the video. The big buck shown at the end of the video is injured. He has stayed alive for quite a long time, and I’ve photographed him a number of times, such as:

Endangered Slavery-Era Churches in Lexington USA: UNESCO World Heritage?

Views:700|Rating:5.00|View Time:16:44Minutes|Likes:14|Dislikes:0
Following the powerful civic response of the historic Main Street Baptist Church of Lexington, Ky., to a proposed threat to her viability where located for the last 145 years, noted civil-rights attorney and First Amendment scholar Amos N. Jones presents context and ideas in this mini-documentary. Voice-overs are from his Sept. 22, 2017, invited Emergency Lecture held in Main Street Baptist’s chapel building at Main and Jefferson. Answering an audience member’s question about how we can leave for our children what our slave ancestors built and left for us, Jones recommends specific methods for preserving Main Street Baptist’s historic location and its commodious campus, exploring UNESCO World Heritage designation to hedge against urban revitalization’s tendency to expunge black historic sites. The next day, the African-American Trust for Historic Preservation vowed to avenge the other four church sites that could eventually be threatened. All five of the churches are introduced in the tour in this video, along with highlights of their historic significance. All five are, Jones explains, extant monuments to religious liberty, erected among a significant indigenous civilization unique in the world — and against the greatest of odds. Jones and others oppose politicians’ and developers’ current efforts to raze these sites to make way for public recreation sites. The tour in this video was filmed on site on the morning of Saturday Sept. 23, 2017, and is presented publicly here, courtesy of the African-American Trust for Historic Preservation with videography by DMZ Productions of Richmond, Ky.
