Photo of Our Lady of Victory Church, in Sereno, Missouri
The parish dates from 1908, and this church dates from 1997. This parish consolidates the now-closed Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary parish in Belgique, Our Lady of the Rosary parish in Claryville, and Saint John the Evangelist mission in Lithium. Like many other churches in that part of the Archdiocese, it is staffed by a priest of the Congregation of the Mission.
Sereno is an unincorporated hamlet located in rural Bois Brule township, Perry County, Missouri, and is about 84 highway miles southeast of downtown Saint Louis. Photo taken on December 31st, 2010.
