Supposedly I was baptized here, and an old friend of the family is very involved, so it made sense to stop by and say hello. Very impressive, very ornate, though the outside is made out of very practical bricks and not grandiose blocks of stone. It has a predominately Polish clientelle. There was a big celebration going on in the basement when I stopped by, with food, drinks, a band and a big crowd. At first I thought it was a Mexican band, they had a couple of trumpets and they were singing in a foreign language, and that would be the norm in Hillsboro, but in Grand Rapids it's Polish. Same kind of upbeat music as I have come to expect from Mexican bands.
