The cornerstone of the church was blessed on January 4, 1902 by the Bishop himself. On December 7, 1905 the new church was inaugurated. The money for the construction came from the religious themselves, in their pastoral missions, as well as from the people, with donations and events. And it didn't take long for the works to be completed. The Heart of Mary Sanctuary presents a rich contribution, not only religious, but also historical and architectural, to the city of Pouso Alegre and the southern region of Minas Gerais.
