The Church parish involved with the present preservation effort are descendants from the original founding German parish who had the Church constructed in 1900. Many of the same German names are still found in the Church registry. The Catholic Church is still planning to use the Church as it was designed in 1900. Changes to the Church since construction have been mainly superficial, such as painting, adding a Narthex wall, adding an elevator in one of the towers, modifying the Church for HVAC, additional lighting and finishing out the basement for a hall which originally had a dirt floor.
