The church dates to 1861 but parish records for births,marriages and deaths begin to be recorded in the mid 1860's. There is a cemetery onsite with a fairly complete plot map for burials. The cemetery is run by a separate organization but the parish secretary knows how to reach them. The parish does not allow the public to view their records but the priest was willing to look up information as time permits.
