Recollections of My Life and Reflections on Times and Events During It: A Memoir by Father W. J. Howlett

His first religious service in Ft. Morgan

"My first religious service at Fort Morgan was in 1897. It was a sermon preached one evening as I was returning to Brighton from Yuma where I had said mass that Sunday morning. The sermon was well attended, and listened to with respect by a few Catholics and a larger number of Protestants. There was a Presbyterian church in the village and a preacher.
