Welcome to the art and images of Holy Trinity Church. You will discover within the church’s walls liturgical art that has been procured over nearly half a century and has been expressed through statuary, mosaics, paintings and windows of stained glass. Hopefully, this web site will assist the you as a handy reference to better understand the individual pieces and to discover in them a source for meditation and motivation.
One of the original purposes of Christian art in the early church was to provide aids for religious education. Artistic visuals were used to convey a story or moral and were included as part of liturgical services.
At Holy Trinity, each work of art fulfills this educational purpose. Every piece can remind us of historical events or significant role models and, thereby, influence and inspire our lives.
Consequently, as you review the photographs and text of this booklet, be mindful of the art that is particularly significant to you. Consider its meaning and message as it applies to your own life. This will create a relationship that will be refreshed and renewed each time you enter and look around your church.
You will find that this guide is organized according to the type of art: stained glass, statues, mosaics, paintings and other - more architectural - art. A diagram is included for each specific category to show where every work is located within the church. When possible, the artists are identified. A short version of the message is included for each piece. Often the meanings of the symbols in the art are explained. Please be aware that more information about any subject can be found by researching the references listed in the Credits page.
You are invited to explore, reflect, and share what you discover with your friends, both young and old. By discussing and learning from each other, we elevate art from being mere decoration to a vital catalyst in our spiritual growth. Enjoy!
