When the Presbyterian congregation expanded and decided to relocate their church, the diocese of Atlanta quickly saw the opportunity to expand its own worship facilities and purchased the building. Glenmary brothers and parishioners remodeled the interior, creating a suitable Catholic environment. On August 18, 1963, Archbishop Paul J. Hallinan celebrated the first Mass in the new church.
