In the early hours of August 23, Holy Trinity was set on fire by an arsonist. Due to the quick thinking of someone who was sleeping in the square and who called emergency services, the church suffered no worse damage than the burning of the west door. We are very grateful to him for taking action to save the church.
To replace the doors will cost about $60 000 overall, and we as a parish must come up with the deductible of $2500. To support this goal, the Burnt Door Concert is being planned for October 20th at 7:30 pm. It will be an eclectic mix of pop and classical music. Mark your calendars!
