The exterior photo was taken last year. This Tudor Gothic building was designed by the firm of Lee & Rush, who also designed the now-closed Most Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church and Saint Pius V Church.
The parish dates from 1911; this church was dedicated on November 22, 1922.
This photo of the nave was taken during the Easter season; the following photos were taken on the vigil of Trinity Sunday.
