' M ^jjtj^ ^j^--.-] ;•' ; Bound Gifts V<'^AI • <l record catoinets by Lame Sacred Heart Catholic parish at Ledyard recently completed an extensive rebuilding and redecorating program, and on its completion, an Open House was held Sunday for persons of all faiths to view the improvements in an ecumenical movement. Visitors were welcomed by men of the parish and taken on guided tours through the church and new Catechetical rooms. Organ music was provided throughout the afternoon by Mrs. Vernon Haag. Ladies of the parish served refreshments in the church hall. A history of Sacred Heart parish follows: The first mass to be said in Ledyard was by Father P. Carroll in 1896. This mass was said in a private home in Ledyard. The first church, was a frame building shipped to Ledyard from Estherville. This building erected here in 1905 burned to the ground in June of 1924. That same year work was begun on a basement church, which,served as>a church until the upper structure was built in 1930. Priests who served this church at Ledyard arc: Father F. "Carroll 18?)(>-1899: Father J. Hassett 1899-1901; Father Francis Wren 1901-1903: Father Michael Bradley, ^1903-1905; Father S. P. : ji^oyi5i9J5-1912: Father H. C. Jck|u€ 19li£l914; ? Father A. Quensel 1914-1921; Father Joseph Schultes 19211923. During this time of the above pastors, Ledyard!was a mission parish 01 Armstrong. In November of 1925, The Bishop 'appointed Father A. J. Arndorfer. as the first resident pastor. For a year or more^ Fa- ther Arndorfer made his home with lay people, as there was no parochial residence. During his stay, Father Arndorfer solicited' funds from-friends and parishioners to build a new parish house which was begun in 1927. In June of 1929, Father P^M. Sturm was appointed Pastor of Sacred Heart. Under the direction of Father Sturm, the come- tery was pin-chased in September of 1929. Also in that year, the construction of a new church was planned. The cornerstone for the ' upper structure was laid on March 30, 1930, by The Reverend Father" Murtagh of Emmetsburg. The speaker for the occasion was Father P. M. Dobberstein of West .Bend.- The new church was dedicated by the Most Reverend "Edmond Heolan on September 9, 1930. .The total cost of the new structure was $12,880. • . ; Father /Sturm left Sacred Heart on January -,1938, upon his appointment as pastor at Rockwell City.; During January and February of that year, the parish needs were /served by 'Father. Bernard V. Greteman! In March of 1938, Father Edward Maynard was appointed pastor of Sacred Heart. It was during his pastorate that the parish experienced its greatest period of growth, more than doubling in membership. Father Maynard was transferred on August 1, 1951, after having served the longest tenure as pastor of Sacred Heart up to the present time. Father B. J. Montag came to Sacred Heart on August 17, 1951, after Father John Ter- ptstra had taken care of the parish for the few weeks following Father Maynard's transfer. ^~In 1958, new stained glass windows were added to Sacred Heart church. These windows were given by various members of the parish as memorials.' Also in .1958, the interior of the church was redecorated. Just before Christmas in 1961, Father Montag was transferred and the parish was served for a few months by Father William Hyland. Father Donald Ries took over duties at Sacred Heart after Father Hyland's transfer. SHE WANTS... ELECTRIC LADY PEPPERELL, Fashion Sheets Newest in spage ^ge timing, tested and proven in space.
