Diocese of Toledo Catholic Center

John Bernat

We received a comment, earlier, from Dr. József Kriston-Vízi, director of the museum at Dombóvár, Hungary. It seems they're doing some work on artists John Bernat and Martha Miligan Bernat, whose work can be found at St. Peter's in Mansfield. Anyone with knowledge of or an interest in the Bernats is welcome to contact him. The comment can be found HERE and a direct e-mail link on THIS PAGE of the MUSEUM WEBSITE.

St. Anthony, Milan

So, St. Anthony has changed a lot over the years. So has the town it's located in, Milan. Maybe the growth of trees, and a major state route are the biggest differences, but let's take a look at the really small details.

The old St. Anthony school is in the bottom left corner of the picture. That picture was probably taken from the tower of the old public school to the right of the church on the second picture. Anyway, look at the first picture. See those rectangle fence-like things? Well, at least until recently, they are still there. (haven't been there in awhile, so not too sure) But, the most recent picture I have (the last) shows one crushed from a tree falling down. A very large tree...probably the same one in the first picture! Anyway, that first picture was taken around 1910. So, just gives you an idea of how it all changes, while some things just lie unnoticed.
