Description
- This German Gothic-styled church is faced in Trenton limestone, trimmed with sandstone, and contains a slate and copper-faced roof.

- This church was originally founded as a German Catholic parish within the dioceses.

- The church building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 28, 1992, and is the only church in the city listed as having "national importance."

- This church was finished in quite a few phases. The octagonal bell tower was completed in 1883, and the spire was constructed atop the tower in 1893. Finally, the pinnacles that line the walls of this church were added in 1911.
