From the Archdiocese of Louisville:
St. Bernard Church, Clementsville, began in 1802, when seven Catholic families from Maryland settled along Casey Creek. The circuit-rider Father Stephen Badin visited to provide Mass and the sacraments, except for a brief period of Trappist presence. Hilly topography and poor roads isolated this pocket of Catholics in a predominantly Protestant area.
These farming families developed their own church and schools in Clementsville, known as the Catholic part of Casey County. Father Charles Nerinckx helped them purchase more than 400 acres (now known as the Chapel Farm) in 1810 and erect a small church, which he christened St. Bernard of Clairvaux. They built a larger church in 1892 and became a full-fledged parish in 1897, with Father John Imhof as resident pastor.
