"Anton and August Flusche arrived on the scene and wanted to promote the town as a German-Catholic colony. In 1891 the brothers acquired 9,300 acres alongside the railroad for settlement... On March 25, 1892, Father Hugo Bardenhewer held the first Mass in Lindsay in the home of William Flusche. This date is now regarded as the town's "birthday." Judge Lindsay donated about eight acres to the Diocese of Dallas for a church, school, and cemetery. Rev. Joseph Blum of Muenster chose the location for a church and a 20 x 50 building was constructed at a cost of $800 - paid for by the Brothers Flusche, Judge Lindsay and people from Gainesville.

The frame church was replaced in 1903 by a brick building, but this was destroyed by a tornado 14 years later. A replacement was built in October of 1919." (See Lindsay, Texas)
