It is also near to the heart of one of my aunts and several of my cousins, as the Henry Lensing family were some of the German immigrants to the United States and Logan County whose lives were entwined with the church for many years.
One of my cousins and I visited Subiaco last summer on a blitz to locate gravestones of several of her ancestors on her father's side of the family.
As we were touring the inside of the church admiring stained glass windows, she whispered for me to come here.
That window was donated to the church by her father's favorite aunt, for whom my cousin was named.
It was a wonderful discovery during a trip seeking her roots.
