Holy Trinity to celebrate 100 years with mass

Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Batavia will be celebrating its 100th anniversary with a special mass Sunday, Oct. 1.

Cincinnati Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk will be at the Holy Trinity to celebrate the 11 a.m. mass with Rev. Brian Reif, pastor of Holy Trinity Church, and the parish community.

“This mass is our formal celebration of our 100th anniversary,” Rev. Brian Reif said. “This will conclude a year’s worth of events marking the church’s founding.”

Rev. Reif said that activities to mark the parish’s centennial over the past year have included the first festival at the church in at least 10 years, and what was possibly the parish’s first fish fry.

Holy Trinity Church was founded in April 1906. The church’s present location at the corner of Sixth and Wood, was completed in 1910.

The community is welcome to attend the celebration, and a reception will follow the mass.
