After a pressing need of the devout German migrants to have their own German-speaking church, the St. John the Baptist, Starlight was born in 1861 in its original form as a log building. As the years passed, generous donors donated acres of land for a school to be built. In 1985, a disastrous fire ravaged the rectory and 3 priests passed away however, this church picked itself up and now is one of the most alive churches. The annual Strawberry Festivals takes place inside these precincts, and is well-attended by Floyds Knobs' people.
