Our History

The development of Trinity Heights began around 1985, when Father Harold Cooper, then pastor of St. Joseph Church in Sioux City, conceived the idea to bring a statue of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Queen of Peace to Sioux City. Our non-profit corporation, Queen of Peace, Inc., was formed and ultimately purchased the grounds that formerly served Trinity College and High School, and a seminary.

Trinity Heights began welcoming its first visitors in 1992 shortly after the Immaculate Heart of Mary Queen of Peace was placed on the grounds. We have expanded steadily since and have welcomed thousands of visitors seeking a peaceful place for prayer and meditation.
