About the Parish and Using the Database

St. Liborius Catholic Church was founded in 1838 by Germans who emigrated five years earlier from the Osnabrück area in today’s western Germany. Today’s St. Libory Village was originally known as Mud Creek, then the Libory Settlement. It is located in southern St. Clair County, Illinois and about 40 miles from St. Louis, Missouri.
