  • I grew up in Schulenburg and am and always will be a parishioner of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Ammannsville. While I live in Houston now, my parents, brother, and two sister still live in Schulenburg and attend church in Ammannsville. The pond directly behind the cemetery in the picture belongs to my grandparents who live immediately behind the church on the hill.

    I am also very familiar with St. Mary’s in High Hill as I have attending mass there frequently as well. The rectory is on one side of the church and the parish hall is on the other side. The cemetery at St. Mary’s is directly behind the church. ... - Regards, Mike Osina, January 04, 2005
