St. Michaels Church:
Support for Java is required
bricks made by slaves, the architectural style of St. Michael Church is a mixture of Ionic and Romanesque. The main altar was imported from France in 1868. The church is filled with antiques: the huge 1873 Redemptorist Mission Crucifix, the 1857 pipe organ, huge Munich art glass windows, priceless framed oil paintings, and many large and small statues.  The Grotto behind the main altar is made of bagasse clinkers. It was dedicated in 1876 and is the first of its kind in the United States. St. Michaels the Archangel is the first Marist foundation in the United States. Since 1863 the Marists have provided services to the people of this community.
