Box 3609, New -r 0e525 Jasper, Ferdinand and Ce- lestine would be a Catholic German triangle from which all the other neighboring Catholic parishes would re- ceive their origin years later. Many early Catholic immi- grants of Dubois County can find their origins in these three parishes. Many people had settled in the Celestine area when they first came but later moved to the Jasper area as the wood industry developed. Celestine's significance is not so much in its size and development in history, but the role it has played in early history. With the recent de- velopinent of the Patoka Lake area, Celestine has witnessed remarkable growth in its church and community these last 10 years. A special Thanksgiving Mass will be celebrated.
