St. Martin - Starkenburg MO

Hi all!
I took my favorite basset to a state park and on the way back, we took the scenic route.  We passed by a couple churches and to my shock, the doors were open!  It was totally awesome!

One church I visited was St. Martin, which was built in 1873.  The Communion Rail is still intact and there is no free standing altar.  There was a sign which mentioned Latin Mass, the next one being August 22 but no time was listed.  St. Martin was merged with St. Joseph to form Christ the Risen Savior, which I think is joined with St. George.  All of these churches are in the Hermann/Rhineland area.  St. Martin is on Highway P, between MO-94 and Highway K.

I thought these were really cool looking.
They seem to be made of metal.

St. Therese, St. Joseph, St. Martin?
It's not St. Martin of Tours, who is usually depicted with a horse and beggar.

I love how the light from the window colors the columns!
