Bishop Miege started from Leavenworth, accompanied by a Jesuit Brother, some time about the end of May, 1860. After various mishaps - including the breaking-down of his conveyance, which forced him to return for repairs after having gone sixty miles - he reached Denver in June. What he found here there are few now living to tell us, but a dozen Catholic families would be near the number, and the unmarried were too transient to be counted upon. A church, however, was a necessity, and he set about pro viding one. He secured a donation from the Denver Town Com pany of a piece of ground at the corner of Stout and F Streets, and urged his little ¿ock to build a Church. Plans were decided upon, committees appointed; and, with encouraging prospects, Bishop Miege left them to continue the work, while he would endeavor to provide a priest for the new district.
