Donate now on GoFundMe! Immaculate Heart of Mary church was built in the late 1940’s on the same site as the original church, San Isidro (St. Isidore). The name was later changed to Immaculate Heart of Mary. Immaculate Heart of Mary Church prior to the mid 1960’s was a parish in its own right, serving the villages of Chacon, upper and lower Holman, Tramperos, and Cleveland.

He and Father John McHugh, who was then the pastor of Saint Gertrudes in Mora, founded a religious order of sisters named after the patroness of the church.
