Sacred Sites Tour
Trinity participated - for the fifth time - in the area’s annual Sacred Sites Tour. As in years past, Jeff Fellows spearheaded the effort to get us ready for the tour. This year, the sponsors of the tour, the Preservation Association of the Southern Tier, requested that participating churches focus on their art and architecture. Jeff had prepared beautiful poster boards, highlighting the roots of our architecture both inside and outside: inside, our architects Lacey and Bartoo drew on high gothic architecture: the wood beams supporting our roof draw on prior art reaching back into the 13th century (e.g. the great Hall in Westminster), while outside they drew on the High Victorian style very much in vogue in the late 1800s: large stones, a compact and almost “squat” shape, heavy-set buttresses to support the interior roof beams. Jeff also was prepared to highlight our musical offerings. And, of course, wherever you look it should be hard to miss symbols of the Trinity: the three rings, fleur de lis, ...
Jeff and Robin Fellows, Fr. Glenn, Rick Schumaker, Bill Palmer, Peter Koeppel all helped guide our visitors. As in years past, we had over 50 visitors, several of whom had come to experience musical offerings at Trinity, and wanted to know more about our beautiful building.
