The first settlers resettled from the United States in 1906. Mass was first said on August 15, followed by the first procession of the Blessed Sacrament. The little church of sod was built on N.W. 28 - 36 - 21 in July. Blessed in September on the feast of St. Michael. The following year the rectory was built and the missionary took residence. The missions of Ermine and St. Francis were attended from here.
The parish developed rapidly and a more permanent structure for a church was built on the same location in 1910. With the coming of the railroad in 1913, the townsite sprouted many business enterprises. With the death of the pastor, the parish remained vacant for two years and was cared for from Scott. Plans were carefully laid for a new church in the townsite and became a reality in June 1922, with Christmas Mass celebrated in the new building. The year 1924 brought the Ursuline Sisters into the public school.
