About Most Pure Heart of Mary Church

Most Pure Heart of Mary parish was formed in 1865, in Chamois. Long before the town was established, Fr. Ferdinand Helias, SJ, visited the area. A former store building served as the first church and was blessed in 1871.

From 1875 to 1908 the parish had no resident priest but was attended by the Franciscan Fathers from Hermann, Missouri.

A new church was dedicated on May 30, 1912, and remodeled in 1980.

Parish History was taken from Proclaiming the Good News in the Heart of Missouri written by Loretta Pastva, SND.
