The baroque Holy Spirit Church in Fulda was built from 1729 to 1733 as a hospital church on the site of its Gothic predecessor from the 13th century. The high altar is dedicated to the Holy Spirit, the right side altar of the church patron Margareta of Pisidia and the left side altar to St. Josef. The church was intended as the meeting place for the 32 arms lived in the affiliated hospital. The first hospital was Johann Adam Henckel. In 1803, the magistrate of the city of Fulda showed the Marian men's and young men's modality, which holds its last meeting on the passion Sunday in the Mary's University Church, the Holy Spirit Church as meeting place, hence the old name Sodality Church. Michael Henkel acts as an organist of sodity until 1851. In 1835 the merciful sisters from the Holy Vinzenz von Paul take over the hospital and the sacristy service. As of January 1, 1906, it became the church of the (territorial) parish of Heilig Geist Fulda, before becoming a branch church of the inner city parish of St. Simplicius, Faustinus and Beatrix in 2015.
