St. Patrick's Catholic Church
St. Patrick's Eddyville was begun in 1887, southeast of Eddyville, when the Burns family donated a plot of land for the cemetery and a church was built there.  In 1893, the church was moved to its present sight, becoming the first church in Eddyville, as a mission for Lexington and Kearney.  Mass was held on weekdays instead of Sunday.  In 1907, the present church was built with Father Daly the first pastor.  Later that year, Father Mustermann became the first resident pastor.  Dedication of the church was July 18, 1909.  Amherst became a mission of Eddyville in 1928.  The new steeple was built in 1939 after the original one was struck by lightning.  In 1982, Amherst became a mission of Kearney when Father Lou Nollette was assigned to Eddyville, Oconto, and Callaway.  This remained until 1994, when regrettably regular weekend masses were no longer held.  This sad event was a result of declining number of priests in our diocese and a declining population in our rural communities.

Please join us for our regular mass at St. John Capistran in Amherst.
