Holy Angels Parish to break ground on new church Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — After more than eight years, Holy Angels Parish will soon have a new home on Indianapolis’ near north side.

The groundbreaking will happen at 1:30 p.m. Saturday for a new church at 28th and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. streets.

The congregation’s old building was built in 1903 and was demolished in 2012.

“These are our neighbors, to us they’re family and so when you’re looking at family, you’re looking at trying to meet the needs,” said Sister Gail Trippett, parish life coordinator for the Holy Angels and St. Rita parishes. “There are a lot of needs, and we try to see what are the resources that we have that we can share with the community.”

Only 100 people will be allowed at the groundbreaking to maintain social distancing.

Construction is expected to be done in the spring.
