The few families in town wanted the church to be built there, but the necessary funds for this good purpose could not be raised by the town people. The people living near the monastery were anxious to have the church in their locality. A sub- scription list was immediately gotten up and $1,000 was pledged for the erection of a new church. The new structure was completeu in the early fall of 1891. But the happiness of the people in the country was short lived. A destructive tronado on May 7, 1892, tore down the church and monastery building, and" the people were deprived of their house of wor- ship. At a subsequent meeting of the congregation it was decided to build a new chm'ch in Morrilton itself. In the summer of the same year a beau- tiful brick structure was begun, and this church has been the parish church ever since for both the county and town people. The following is a list of the pas- tors of Sacred Heart parish since its foundation and their term of office: Rev. Eugene Schnfidt, C. S. Sp., 1879-1880 inclusive. Rev. A. J. Zielenbach, C. S. Sp., 1881-1883 inclusive. Rev. John Bosch, C. S. Sp., 188,1. Rev. A. J. Zielenbach C. S. Sp., 1885-1886 inclusive. Rev. M. Heizmann, C. S. Sp., 1887- 1892 inclusive. Rev. E. Schmidt, C. S. Sp., .1893, 1895 inclusive. Rev. Chas. Laengst, C. S. Sp., 1896- 1897 inclusive. Rev. M. Heizman, C. S. Sp., 1898- 1899 inclusive. Rev. H. Meusbach, C. S. Sp., 1900- :1903 inclusive. Very Rev. J. A. Haas, C, S. Sp., 1904-1914 (April). Rev. F. Olfen, C. S. Sp., May to September, 1914. Rev. H. J. Goebel, C. S. Sp., from September 1914. The beautiful brick church and rec- i tory were built (luring the pastorate of the Rev. Heizmann, C. S. Sp. Ex- tensive repairs and improvements were made by the Very Rev. J. A. Haas, such as the metal ceiling and panting of the interior of the church, and metal roof on church, school and rectory. During his rgime, the par- ish society ha!l also was erected Father Goebel also has undertaken extensive repairs and improvements since coming to MomIton. In 1917 all the class rooms were fitted out with the latest models in school desks; all the out buildings on the convent grounds were torn down and a beau- tiful building erected to supply all wants. Besides the furnishing of the rectory, extensive improvements were made this year in the church The high altar has been remodeled; elec- i tric lights installed and the first Eu- I charistic Tabeaacle Safe in the dio- cese ha. been procured. Morrilton can boast of having all :the buildings necessary for a complete church and plant, and is efitirely free from debt. St. Joseph's Academy In 1880 the Sisters of St. ;Joseph of Cluny came from France and erected a beautiful two and a half story brick !structure on Raih'oad Avenue. This building was intended as an academy for the higher education of young ladies. At the same time the Sisters took charge of the parish school on Monastery Ridge. But the Sisters :did not meet with the success they desm-eed. After many trials and vicissitudes, they llinquished their charge and sold the beautiful acad- emy building to the Sacred Heart par- ish for u parish convent and school. In 1897 the services of the School Sisters of Notre Dame of St. Louis were secured and their work in the school ever since has been very faith- ful and highly satisfactory. Sister M. Theopista is the present superior Sacred Heart School has the full course of eight grades and next year an Academy class will be started for advanced studies and bookkeeping. The school is free, the support of the Sisters being taken care of by a special collection taken up on the first Sunday of each month. IN GOOD PART.

Hither he often came and enjoyed the hospitality of the g, od Sisters of Mercy to whom he was a tne Father until his death, which occurred here on June 10: 1862. His remains were inerred in the Sisters' garden and re- mained there until 1881, when they were placed in a cwpt beneath the sanctuary of the new St. Andrew's Cathedral, Little Rock. Bishop Byrue's untimely death and the Civil War dealt crushing blows to the bright future presaged for Helena and St. Catherine's Academy. The people became poor; their lands were confiscated and they were forced to leave that once smiling egion and seek other sources of maitenance. As i a consequence the Sisters were forced to depart. I What a disappointmeht; Ten years! of incessant labor marked by utter failure. Helena suffered more from the war than any city in Arkansas, and to this we may justly attribute her inability to attain her destiny in religious and other pursuits. Rev. Thomas Shanahan became a2 resident priest of St. Mary's Church in 1868. We have no record of his eight years spent there, yet we readily can picture how sad and lonely his Iife must have been since the Sisters of Mercy and many of the principal families had been forced to withdraw on count of poverty. Re J. M. Boliezkes succeeded Father Shanahan. During the fourth year of his pastorate at the invitation the Queen of Heaven. The past year 1918-1919 has been marked by great spiritual and finan- cial progress. The congregation is in- debted to Father McGrath's zael for a mission given by Father Luke Calla- han, a priest of the Holy Ozxler of Pas- sionists. The Mission lent new zest to a deeper and truer spirituality. Many of the Catholic families were victims of the "flu" and a few suf- fered bereavement. Father McGrath was untiring in his attractions, edify- ins all by his self-sacrifice and priest- ly devotion. The spiritual welfare of the boys in one of Father's greatest concerns..He lms organized a Boy Scout Patrol and is their Scout Master. He is never happier than when presiding their weeMy meetings ad bikes. took the lads on a camping expedition and they lived a real Boy Scout life in the beautiful woods near Springs.
