Calumet, Michigan's St. John the Baptist Church

Last Sunday I posted an entry about St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church of Calumet, Michigan.

That church served the Slovenian population of the Upper Peninsula mining town. A few years later, Croatians built their own Catholic church, St. John the Baptist.

A fire destroyed the first church, the brick structure--note the cross over the red and white shield--was dedicated in 1940.

The church was deconsecrated in 1966, it was among the parishes closed to form St. Paul the Apostle.
