Dr. Josip Štadler, the first Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Vrhbosna, was instrumental in the building of the church, which opened on November 12, 1906.
This was a time when Sarajevo was expanding rapidly, with workers from all over the Austro-Hungarian Empire moving to Sarajevo. Most of those who settled here were Catholic and so the Catholic parish of the Holy Trinity was founded in 1902, followed four years later by the construction of the church.
The church was designed by Josip Vancaš, who served as the official architect and advisor to the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Vrhbosna. As such, Vancaš was responsible for designing all of the structures constructed by the Catholic Church during the period of Austro-Hungarian rule.
