Bishop Chatard Dies…

On this day in history – September 7, 1918, Bishop Francis Silas Marean Chatard died in Indianapolis. Like his predecessor, Bishop St. Palais, Chatard oversaw a great deal of growth and upheaval in the Church in Indiana. From the relocation of the Episcopal See from Vincennes to Indianapolis, to the growth in parishes, schools and the number of Catholics. Here are two samples of the newspapers of the time.
