   Rev. Father Augustin Morin died at El Paso, Texas, Saturday, January 12, 1916.  For more that a quarter of a century he had charge of the Silver City, New Mexico, parish of St. Vincent de Paul.  He was one of the most widely known and beloved ecclesiastics of the Southwest.            

Father Morin had been an invalid for the past three years.  Shortly after Christmas, 1912, he contracted a severe cold while engaged in his priestly work at one of the nearby mining camps.  Despite the advice of his physician, he would not rest from his labors, and pneumonia soon developed.  However, his rugged constitution carried him through this attack and in January he was well enough to take a trip to Las Cruces to participate in the celebration of the feast of the patron saint of the church there, but he overtaxed himself and suffered a relapse.  On his return he was compelled to take a long rest, and remained at St. Joseph’s sanatorium under the care of the sisters for several months.  While he recovered from the pneumonia, its effects remained and left him an invalid, so that he was deprived of the free use of his limbs from then on.  But he refused to abate his activity in the performance of his duties, and made regular trips to the various missions throughout the county, over which he had charge, undergoing severe hardships and suffering without complaint.              

Finally his indisposition became such that it was necessary for him to take a rest.  In December 1913, Bishop Granjon appointed Father Henry Heitz pastor of the parish, Father Morin remaining as pastor emeritus.   He said mass almost daily, and even a week before leaving for El Paso to enter the hospital he insisted on hearing confessions in the church.   

It was always his determination to work as long as he could by the utmost exertion, and he consented to go to El Paso only when he realized that the end was near.  He told Father Heitz before he left, December 30th, that he had but a few more weeks to live, and it was his desire to spend the time in prayer and contemplation with the Jesuits at El Paso, to whom he was always greatly devoted.  He faced death with the same courage, the same holiness of spirit that characterized his whole life.             

The career of Father Morin in the Southwest is an epic.  In a background richly colored with the romantic, picturesque atmosphere of the pioneer days, it was replete with evidences of heroic self-sacrifice, dauntless personal courage and enthusiastic devotion to the work to which he dedicated his life, it is the history of the new era, or time when the scepter of spiritual dominion passed from the old Franciscan missionaries, to the head of a regularly organized see of the Catholic church at Tucson, Arizona.  When he came here in 1869 the Southwest was a vast, trackless, wild country, but thinly settled and infested with numerous bands of marauding hostile Indians.  He lived to see it become the veritable empire it is today.  He came here with the old frontiersmen who first dreamed of its material grandeur; but like the old Franciscan who came with the Conquistadores his dream was of the salvation of souls and the building of a spiritual empire.             

Father Morin was born in Clermont, France, on the 8th day of December in the year 1845.  He early in life decided to enter the priesthood, and as soon as he finished his academic studies entered the seminary of the Sulpicians.   He was ordained a priest after finishing his studies with high honors in 1869, when twenty-four years of age. About that time Bishop J. B. Salpointe, who had lately been appointed vicar apostolic of the Southwest with his see at Tucson, Arizona, was visiting the seminary where he himself had studied, for the purpose of inducing the young seminarians to southwestern United States as missionaries. His appeal was received with enthusiasm by the young Father Morin, and he quickly decided to return with the bishop.   However, his parents greatly objected.  Their affection for him could hardly submit to the sacrifice, for it was certain the he would never return to them, after leaving. So the bishop left without him.  But Father Morin, a purpose once formed, never quit.  He spent two months at his home and finally received the consent of his father, and set out immediately for this country. He never saw France again.             

At that time, Bishop Machebeuf, who had been appointed  the first bishop of Denver, Colorado, was also in France gathering recruits, and with him Father Morin came to the United States, traveling with him as far as Kansas City.  The bishop put forth every effort to induce Father Morin to go on to Denver with him, but he considered that he was held by a promise to the see of Tucson. He therefore left the bishop at Kansas City and set out from there by stage, Kansas City being then the terminus of the railroad.             

On arriving at Albuquerque the driver of the stage refused to go farther on account of the reports that had just come in of Indian depredations along the stage route, but Father Morin refused to wait and went on with another party.  On arriving at Las Cruces they overtook Bishop Salpointe and his little band of missionaries, just recruited from France.  There in the party besides the bishop and Father Morin, Father Bourgade, who later became pastor of the church in Silver City, later bishop of Tucson, and finally archbishop of Santa Fe, which he occupied until the time of his death in 1910; Father Anthony Jovenceau, who died some years ago; Father John Chaucot, who died at Tucson, January 31, 1911; Father Bernard, who died in France a few years ago, and Father Andrew Echalier, who is now parish  priest at Dona Ana, Dona Ana County, New Mexico, and the only survivor of that heroic band of missionaries.             

The party arrived at Tucson on the first day of February, 1870.   After a few weeks’ stay in Tucson Father Morin went to the old mission of Tubac, about seventy-five miles from Tucson, where he remained about six months, applying himself assiduously to the study of English and Spanish.  While there he contracted malarial fever and his health became so impaired that he was compelled to seek a change of climate.  The bishop sent him to Mesilla, Dona Ana County. At that time Dona Ana County was still in the see of Durango, Mexico, and Father Morin had to wait a year in Mesilla before that section was taken from the jurisdiction of the bishop of Durango and turned over to the bishop of Tucson.  Father Morin remained in Mesilla about twelve years, when he was recalled to Arizona.  He was pastor at Tombstone but a few months when he was appointed vicar-general of the diocese of Tucson.  That was in 1884.  In 1889 he resigned as vicar-general on account of ill health and went to Santa Fe to recuperate. After a stay of six months in Santa Fe he went to Silver City as pastor, until he bid his friends farewell on his last trip to El Paso.

He was born in Salerno, Italy. Father Pinto was known throughout the entire southwest as a builder of churches and schools. He was 78 years old.             Father Pinto was probably one of the best known priests in the southwest and for 12 years was a superior of the Jesuit order in Colorado, New Mexico and west Texas. Later he was appointed as vicar general for west Texas.             Father Pinto has the distinction of having built all of the Catholic churches and schools of this city, excepting St. Patrick’s cathedral and the Guardian Angel school, and it was only through his efforts extending over years that they were built.  When he came to this district in 1892 as the head of the Jesuit fathers he found one small chapel supplying the needs of the entire community. Within a year of his arrival the Immaculate Conception and Sacred Heart churches were erected. As at about the same time he began the erection of two schools of the same names. He organized St. Mary’s school and after this came St. Ignacius church and school. Then he began the Holy Family church and school, but death prevented his seeing the completion of this work.             Father Pinto came to this country in 1870. He came to the west in 1872 and for six years was located at Trinidad, Colo. From Trinidad he went to Pueblo where he remained for three years. Then he was sent back to Trinidad where he remained until 1892 when he came to El Paso.             Funeral services will be held in Sacred Heart church at 9:30 o’clock Friday morning when the office of the dead will be chanted. This will be followed immediately by low mass, read by bishop A. J. Schuler. Burial will be in Concordia cemetery.
