St. Benedict's Church

The original St. Benedict's Church was erected in 1910, two years before the congregation became a parish, and was destroyed by fire in 1923. This brick structure was built to replace it in 1925, under the leadership of Father Yvo Tymen, O. M. I. (1879-1977), who served as Pastor of St. Benedict's from 1921-1937. In addition to this church, he supervised the construction of a rectory and renovation of school facilities damaged by 1933 hurricane.
