Blessed Trinity’s Sacred Sites Open House
Saturday, July 23, 2022
Blessed Trinity Church joins the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Eleventh Annual Sacred Sites Open House. This year’s theme, Open Doors, celebrates the return to in-person programming and highlights the broad spectrum of historical periods, faith traditions, and styles of religious architecture found in communities throughout the Empire State. As a participating congregation, Blessed Trinity will showcase its Landmark building with a presentation on its architecture and parish history accompanied by a docent-led tour. Learn about this “made in America” replica of twelfth century Lombard-Romanesque architecture including: handmade bricks set in a style dating back to the Middle Ages, extensive use of terra cotta, fascinating medieval iconography, and display of more than 2,000 Christian symbols. Reservations are now open for this free event. Click HERE to register.
Fr. Ron Sajdak invites us to be part of a community conversation based on this conscience-altering masterwork by Isabel Wilkerson. The presentation will also be live-streamed at clarencepresby.org.

Please plan to pray with us at this special prelude to Holy Week, an adaptation of the Liturgy of Tenebrae (meaning “darkness” or “shadows”). This sacred service features seven readings relating the story of Jesus’ passion and death with sung response by the St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum. Candles and lighting are extinguished after each reading, with gradual darkness symbolizing the coming darkness of Jesus’ death. Choral works by Tallis, Byrd, Croce, Haydn, Farrant, Palestrina and others will be performed by the Schola, an “a cappella” choir dedicated to preserving, promoting and performing sacred choral works from the great treasury of music of the Catholic Church. Their repertoire ranges from Gregorian Chant to masterpieces of sacred polyphony from the Middle Ages to modern times. Follow them on Facebook @JP2Schola.
Bible Study on ZOOM continues at 4PM on Tuesdays. You can participate every Tuesday from the comfort of your home and not have to worry about inclement weather or rush-hour traffic. Click this ZOOM link and join us as we continue our study of Luke’s Gospel.
