An interesting except was found in the Huron County Chronicle, October 1, 1878. It reads:

The German Catholics of Peru observed the 40 hours Adoration obligation last week. During that time they were almost constantly in church. The bell called the worshipers to the sanctuary two mornings at half past four o'clock. Don't the boys all want to join that denomination?

The zeal for their faith that this small community displayed was undoubtedly difficult for most non-Catholics to understand even though they had been here for forty years.
