Report of Fr Kolb

About the year of purchase 1901

On the First Friday of the month of July, Fr Peter Resch celebrated the first High Mass in the Chapel of St Michael, and in August I, as the Novice Master, conducted the first recollection day for the Pallottine community that was present. It consisted of novices, students and the house Brothers. The subject was: O sacred banquet …

From then on Holy Mass was read and the Blessed Sacrament reserved, since, by virtue of a special privilege, we have the right to reserve the Blessed Sacrament in our churches and chapels …

The Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel of St Michael

In September 1901, while the house chapel in the old house was still being completed and used, the Chapel of St Michael continued to be used as a temporary chapel for Holy Mass, because there was only one altar at first in the house chapel. Later there were two, but if there were a number of priests there, it wasn’t sufficient. However, from September 1901 the Blessed Sacrament was no longer reserved in the Chapel of St Michael.

(Things remained this way until September 1912, when the students moved from the old study house to the new one, and all the chapels in the valley were closed.)
