1849-1999

Holy Trinity Parish was established in 1849 to serve a German-American population.
One hundred years later in 1949 its status was changed from a German "national" church to a territorial parish.
It is the oldest continuously-worshipping Catholic community in Evansville.
In 1853 the Sisters of Providence began teaching grade school here.
The parish hosted the first Catholic high school in Evansville, from 1919 to 1925, which became Memorial High School, known as the Memorial Annex.
From 1957 to 1976 the Diocesan Chancery Offices were here.
From 1964 to 1999 it was the temporary cathedral (Pro-Cathedral) and was the site of the bishop's chair (cathedra) for the first four bishops of the Diocese of Evansville: Most Rev. Henry J. Grimmelsman, Most Rev. Paul F. Leibold, Most Rev. Francis R. Shea, and Most Rev. Gerald A. Gettelfinger.
The present community is grateful to God for 150 years of blessings.

October 1999.
