The first St. Catherine's was ordered from Sears & Roebuck,
as a pre-cut building.  It cost $2,000, and opened in early 1931.

“Served my first of many Masses there at 6:30 am.  One hot July day Fr. Owen Patrick Gleason's sermon were these exact words: 'It's really hot.  Go home and meditate on the fires of Hell.'  Quickest Mass I ever attended.”  Tim Kennedy, commenting on Facebook

Fort Thomas, Kentucky Church

Fort Thomas' fort's chapel was dedicated on October 12, 1941, with members of three different faiths present - it was made of pine, had stained glass windows and had offices for three chaplains.  An altar for Catholic services slid out of the front wall.  Above it was a scroll cabinet for Jewish service.  A pulpit was available for Protestant services.  Moved after the war, it stands today at 338 East 9th Street, Newport, where it's the home of the First Church of God.
