The annual Litomysl Summer festival is this Sunday at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church just south of Owatonna.

The 170 families of the parish will host the event, which is one of the largest summer parish festivals held in Minnesota each year. The country style festival draws people from all over.

Holy Trinity Church dates back to 1878, when settlers in the Litomysl community built their first church. The community is actually named after the original Litomysl, located about 100 miles east of Prague. In 1940-41 they built the stone church that parishioners worship in today. It is one of the largest stone churches in the nation. Members of the parish brought over 600 loads of rock from their fields to build it.
