The Church that Refused to Die: St. Bridget's
St. Bridget's was the third Catholic Church built in Indianapolis. Historical Landmarks gave it an 'outstanding' rating for its importance in 'architecture, education, and religion.' The church had an active and devoted congregation. Yet it was closed by the archdiocese in 1994 and, despite an appeal to Rome, demolished in 1998 when the land along the canal became quite valuable. This is the story of how the parishioners lost their beloved building, but stayed together as a loving community and saved their soul.
