Five new trees line the main entrance of the Diocese of Evansville Catholic Center. The trees, funded by an anonymous donor, honor the first five bishops of Evansville. To celebrate the Catholic Diocese of Evansville’s 75th Anniversary, and in response to Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical on caring for the earth — “Laudato Si’” — 75 trees were also planted on the northeast section of the Diocese of Evansville Catholic Center property.
