It was in reality somewhat bold for a man who had nothing collected, nothing even promised for this new enterprise; but it seemed to him a matter of necessity; he left to God the care of finding the resources. Who that has ever hoped in the Lord was confounded? One year later the church was up, to the great joy of the house and of the whole Catholic congregation, as will be shown presently. And in the month of November of the year 1849 this same church had the honor of being solemnly consecrated under the title of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, as will be mentioned in due time.
