Catholics met in an abandoned synagogue while the new church was under construc- tion. In December 1923 a solid brick church was built and named St. Louis after the French king. In 1926 a school was opened but closed in 1965 because of the shortage of sisters. The most extensive renovations were made in 1994. The sanctuary was remodeled and a choir loft, cry room, reconciliation room, bathrooms, con- ference room and storage were added.
