Church of the Advent
Trinity Episcopal Church was established in 1919 as the “Church of the Advent”—a name selected because of its nature as a “coming church.” This phrase was meant to connote that the church was on the cusp of developing into a significant parish. It was formed to serve the then northern suburbs of Indianapolis. A modest parcel of land and vacant church building were purchased at 33rd and Meridian for the church’s home. In the 1930s, the interior of the church was remodeled to incorporate more traditionally Episcopal elements, including a rood screen.
