Trinity Church

Fostering Diversity and Creating Community

trinity church new york

The Financial District hides some of New York’s greatest history, such as Trinity Church. The church’s cemetery holds some of the oldest tombstones in history, two of which happen to belong to Alexander Hamilton and his wife, Eliza Hamilton. The church itself is rich in history. It was first been built in the late 17th century. The church perished in the Great Fire of 1776, but was rebuilt it in 1790. The building is a monument in itself, and its intricate architecture makes for a worthwhile trip downtown.

Just a few blocks north of the church is a bonus site and a connecting parish to Trinity. St. Paul’s Chapel became a site of refuge after the 9/11 attacks. It was called “The Little Chapel That Could” because although the World Trade Center towers fell just feet away from the church, no damage was done to the building.

Though the church does identify as Episcopal, it prides itself on being racially, ethnically, and economically diverse. The church attracts over three million visitors and immigrants annually.

Trinity Church also maintains an active music and arts industry that presents concerts and arts events throughout the year. The parish also provides a wide variety of educational opportunities, such as workshops, lectures, retreats, and other events for all ages.

Additionally, Trinity Church also serves to better its own community, surrounding communities, and communities around the world. In New York City, for example, the church hosts prayer services six days a week. St. Paul’s Chapel also serves people who face financial difficulties by feeding them. The Parish Center acts a free community space that welcomes all to use recreationally. Trinity Church also established a preschool and an apartment complex that caters to elderly and disabled residents.

Trinity is more than just a church; to tourists, visitors, and locals, Trinity forms the breadth of the larger community and inspires others to give back when they can. This church is an attraction that can humble any visitor.
