The historical rectory was built in 1870 as part of Holy Trinity, the first Catholic church in Southern Indiana. The rectory suffered smoke and water damage when the church was destroyed by a fire in 1975. While Holy Trinity was never rebuilt, the rectory was repaired and has since been used by various social service agencies during the last 30 years. St. E’s recently acquired the building and plans to use it for Mental Health Counseling and office space after rehabilitations are complete.
