(The tornado of 1915 blew
off the steeple)

Sacred Heart became St. Michael Sacred Heart Church, 1911,
(for German speaking Catholics) and is now called Holy Trinity.

The larger building was built in 1893 - that's the old church on
the right.  These are at the corner on Taylor and Division.

St. Anthony's, Bellevue
(for English speaking Catholics)

Saint Anthony's last mass was on June 22, 2003.  The program from that event had a history of the church, and you can read it here (pdf)

St. Anthony's Father Thomas McGrady was known nationally for his writings and his politics.
He was a Christian socialist, a writer, and a friend of Eugene Debs.[Wikipedia]

There's a bio of McGrady here.

Rev. Paul Ryan's History of St. Anthony's, from 1954, is here.
