Tours Offered on Sacred Sites Weekend, May 21 & 22, 2016
Feb 21, 2016 | Upcoming Events
On May 21 and 22, Blessed Trinity will participate in the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Sixth Annual Sacred Sites Open House Weekend, inviting the public to experience our house of worship as a repository of faith, art, and history. Members of our docent team will be on hand to explain the church’s unique features that make it the purest replication of 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. Watch for additional details as they become available.
Blessed Trinity, listed on the National Register of Historic Place, is wheelchair accessible.
