St. Augustine Catholic Church - Richmond, MI

My Grandma Lueck attended this church in Richmond, Michigan.  She was a 15 yr. old farm girl, when it was dedicated in 1913.  Not much later, maybe four years,  she was married there...  the newly-weds, Joseph and Grace Lueck.  My great-grandparents also attended this parish.

In many ways, it was due to my grandma's dedicated, active faith that I am a Catholic today.  She would often take me to Mass in Detroit in the early '60's when it was still all Latin and the light of sacredness radiated from the Church walls.... as a young girl, I was always in such awe.  It was like visiting Heaven!
