The properly committee will study the plans. Council approved proceeding Rev. Trainor was master ceremonies. In his address lo the gather- ing, Bishop Doyle offered his sincere compliments to Father Trainor on Ihe blessing and opening of the new SI. Mich- ael's buildings here. He spoke of the long and Sous process, postponed be- cause it depended on decisions I beyond the control of the par-' ish. "We share the greater joy of the parishioners on this occa- sion because it has been so long in coming." Father Trainor thanked all those who had made donations and pledges lo the new church and those who had helped to establish it. He congratulated the parish council on its pa- tience. At times it looked though the new church would i never be a reality. j S'.. Michael's parish began j with the mining operations in j the valley. With the miners and their families came mission- aries to minister to the reli- gious welfare of the commu- j nity. The Oblale Fathers, already established in the East Koole- nays, now extended their ser- vices to include the mining communities which had sprung up in the Valley of the Elk. The parishes were fortunate to have the assistance of Fath- ers N. Coccola and A. Meleaux. They helped the Catholic fam- (lies' of Michel to establish the parish of St. Michael's in 1904. The church did not have a resident priest for the next 30 years. The needs of the parish were administered to by the Oblate Fathers from their head- quarters at Fernie. i Father Meisner, assisted by Fathers S a lies, O'Ncil, An- thony, Michels and Murphy ad- ministered to the parish for the next 12 years. As new towns developed, church services were held a month and even two months apart Michel shared mission- aries with Crow's Nest, Corbin, Hosmer. Coal Creek. Morris- sey. Elko and Bayncs Lake. Weddings and baptisms would take place at Fernie and the celebrations were held at Mi- chel. It was October, 1933, before St. Michael's parish ceased to be considered a mission. At this time Father Cregg, belov- ed and respected by all who knew him, was parish priest. In 1937 Father Harrison was serv- ing the parish. It was he, de- spite the hard times, who rais- ed funds towards the building of a new church at Natal. Fath- er Cregg had built a small cha- pel at Natal during his stay in the parish. This was named St. Stephen's Chapel. In 1942 Father Brophy came Father Trainor went on to say. "As we start a new era in Sparwood, let us begin in the proper way, asking God's bless- wiil be demolished as part of ing on each individual family the Urban Renewal Scheme. within the larger family of the Father Trainor, in his last, parish, by everyone receiving address to the congregation in the body and blood of Christ in Holy Communion."
