Trinity Church on the Green, a landmark example of Gothic style architecture on the New Haven Green is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year and will kick off that celebration with an interfaith service “celebrating New Haven’s religious freedom tolerance and diversity” this Sunday January 17 at 5 p.m. Participants will include faith community leaders representing Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Buddhism.
Constructed at a time when acceptance of diverse beliefs was gaining ground against the restrictive theocratic rules of Connecticut’s Fundamental Orders, Trinity Church on the Green today reaches out to the community with events celebrating the arts, music and with continuing efforts that support the needs of New Haven’s homeless population.
You can learn more about the Sunday celebration and the history of Trinity Church on the Green with these links to the church website: Trinity Church 200th, Trinity Church Interfaith Service.
My work for Trinity Church has included photography and video production to facilitate their mission in the community and includes this virtual tour that enables you to go inside and enjoy this architectural gem right now. – Tony Bacewicz
