Teodoro Pototzkey, resident in Colony 5, recorded the events of the time in a letter to the Ukrainian newspaper Svoboda, in United States of America, in 1898:
“(...) our Reading club was founded on July 25, 1897. It is located next to the church in the house we built for our priest, Father Nikon Rozdolsky (...). A church brotherhood has been established for the colonists: that of St. Nykola for the men and of the Holy Sacraments for the women (…). Our church was blessed on the fifth Sunday of Great Lent in 1897 (…). The work took exactly 55 days to complete (…). Ours is the best of all Ruthenians colonies in Brazil and God has made this a very good year for us (…)”.
Ivan Paceviecz, arrived in Brazil in 1891, accompanied by his parents and two sisters, his memories were published in the newspaper Pratsia in 1951, :
“There was no church when we arrived (...). The first church was built in 1897. It was located a good distance away and so we would travel there by foot two or there times a year. The people began to built a church in Serra do Tigre in 1899. (…)”.
- About 18,550 Ukrainians arrived in Brazil during this period;
