LIBERATE the TOWER!

- CONCERT VENUE
- EVENT SPACE
We have established the Tower and Organ Restoration Fund. We need your support to remain a vital community resource.

The damage and disrepair sustained by our landmark building dates back as far as the 1957, when the church was closed for more than a decade. Since then the parish has managed to address a host of major and minor building concerns. Yet ongoing financial constraints have caused us to defer extensive and costly restoration and repairs to the church exterior and interior, stained windows, and organ. We know that to ensure the safety and accessibility of the building, we must act now.
St. Ann & the Holy Trinity needs your help on a project that will focus first on a restoration of the tower and the pipe organ housed inside it. The tower and tower roof are being made a priority as they continue to deteriorate after years of neglect. The stonework and flat roof are in very poor condition. The 1925 organ inside is functioning, but has many original parts that should be replaced.
The acclaimed E.M. Skinner organ, a memorial to the Peabody Family, is an integral part of the church interior, attracting musicians and music lovers from near and far. Its wellbeing is integrally linked to that of the building itself.
The damage to the tower and organ that is sure to occur if restoration is deferred much longer would be catastrophic for the parish that is presently entering a period of growth and relies greatly on the use of our magnificent building to host a wide range of church and community programming.
