Early German and Czech settlers in this area of Lavaca County attended Catholic worship services in private homes or at churches in Hallettsville or Moulton until 1890, when a n ew mission was established in Shiner by the Rev. John Anthony Forest. The new congregation was named for 9th Century Greek missionaries Cyril and Methodius, who converted Slovakian-Moravian central Europeans to Christianity.
