St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Charities held an official grand opening for its new 12-bed maternity home at 601 E. Market St. in New Albany on June 30th, and for the completed renovations of the historic Holy Trinity Rectory, at 701 E. Market St., which will house offices.
“They provide so many valuable services day in and day out,” Gahan said. “They are dedicated to the quality of life in New Albany, and the dignity of all human life.”
St. Elizabeth’s is also celebrating its 25th anniversary in New Albany this year. The short ceremony Monday was held inside the new maternity home, which was blessed by the Rev. Wilfred [Sonny] Day which was followed by tours of the facilities.
Casper said it took more than two years to renovate the old Holy Trinity Rectory into office space for St. Elizabeth’s. He said it could not have been done without the help of “so many in the community” along with the support of the city of New Albany, Gahan and State Rep. Ed Clere, R-New Albany.
“We are so grateful to everyone,” Casper said.
“They took a hands-on approach to that building,” Clere said of the renovation work at the Holy Trinity Rectory. “That will once again become a special building for this community.”
