St. Ann & the Holy Trinity is a National Historic Landmark and has been designated World Monuments Fund site in recognition of its importance to city and architectural history. As such, its preservation is a responsibility that falls not just to the parish, but also to the community of which is an integral part.
The challenges to restoration, repair and maintenance have been constant and challenging. Many of the building’s problems date to the twelve years it stood empty and untended in the late 1950s and 1960s. Over the years, and with much public support, roofs and windows have been restored and most recently, the decorative ceiling of the sanctuary has been stabilized. It is a safe and beautiful place for the many uses it serves – performances, presentations, meetings, exhibitions and of course worship.
Restoration of the Tower
The tower needs significant restoration. Scaffolding has stood in front of our church for decades, protecting pedestrians from the potential of falling stone and obscuring the welcome offered by a truly magnificent entrance. We are currently seeking funds to remove the scaffolding and simplify the protection with netting while we proceed with plans for exterior restoration.
The Tower and Organ Restoration Fund has been established to receive support for the restoration of stone and with that the removal and repair of the E.M. Skinner pipe organ that is housed inside the tower.
Please help us restore the integrity of this magnificent building’s entryway and the spirit of welcome it reflects.
