NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - New Albany's first Catholic church was honored with a special outdoor mass service Wednesday night.

Holy Trinity Heritage Court marks the spot that once housed Holy Trinity Catholic Church, which was built in 1852.

The area has been vacant since a fire destroyed the church in 1979.
