Bismark Church

St. Sebastian Church in Bismark, Ohio -

The grassy area to the left of the parking lot is a cemetery now. My Grandpa and Great Grandparents are buried there.

The church were my parents were married. One of the oldest churches in Ohio but unfortunately the Toledo Dioceses don’t value historical landmarks and had ordered the demolition on this parish. So very sad. Truly a beautiful parish inside and out

I grew up in this community, went to this church, sang in the choir, made my first communion here. Parents, grandparents, great grandparents and more are buried here. It was a sad day when the Diocese closed the church and even sadder when they tore it down.

The tents are set up for the festival
