St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities New Albany held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new social services building on Oct. 10.

The 163-year-old building was originally the rectory for the former Holy Trinity Parish, the first Catholic parish in New Albany. The structure was given to St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities as a gift by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

The agency spearheaded a campaign to raise funds to renovate the building.

This space will allow St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities to increase case management services, as well as mental health therapy.
