Art Deco Church and Theater
in Bloomington Normal Illinois
Holy Trinity Church
Tragedy struck the parish as fire totally destroyed the church in March 1932. Fortunately, Msgr. Stephen Moore had the foresight to buy insurance, which covered most of the financial loss. Just two years later in April 1934, the parish celebrated the dedication of the new art-deco style church that still stands today. The current structure is widely recognized as the purest and most imaginative expressions of that architectural design in the nation.
