Waller County Churches
ST. MARY'S CATHOLIC CHURCH (1960) - Hempstead
Reverend Alfred W. Raye was pastor from 1956 to 1960. During this time the Catholic Youth Organization was formed and a new beautiful church was erected. The next priest was Father Joseph Schneider. The final indebtedness was paid off and plans for a new rectory were made. This is next to the old St. Mary's Church, which was later moved to the new property on FM-1488.
