In May 2018, Blessed Trinity will participate in the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Eighth Annual Sacred Sites Open House Weekend, inviting the public to experience “Sacred Sounds and Settings” in our Landmark house of worship. Members of our docent team will be on hand Saturday, May 5, from 2-4pm and Sunday, May 6, 12 Noon-2pm to explain the unique features that make Blessed Trinity Church the purest replication of 12th century Lombard-Romanesque architecture in the United States. You’ll be able to examine its handmade bricks set in a style dating back to the Middle Ages, learn about the elaborate display of medieval iconography on the terra cotta portico, and stand in awe at the more than 2,000 symbols summarizing Christian beliefs in ceramic tiles, paintings and sculpture. Our site is wheelchair accessible, and visitors are encouraged to bring cameras and binoculars.
Tours each day will end with musical performances, allowing you to experience the building’s splendid acoustic. On Saturday at 4pm, choral music accompanied on the church’s original Tellers-Kent organ will soar from the loft as it has for more than 70 years in a brief concert by the parish choir prior to 4:30pm Mass. On Sunday at 2pm, enjoy the building’s acoustical embrace in the a cappella choral offerings of the St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum, including seasonal selections and Gregorian chant.
Church tours are free and open to the public. A free-will offering will be taken at the musical events.
