Why We Charge for Touring:
It pains us to have to charge for touring. Trinity Church does not receive any direct operating support from sources other than parishioner pledges. It costs nearly $35,000 per week to operate the church building, not including the additional funds needed for restoration projects.
We are called to preserve and restore a building that is more than 140 years old and to keep its doors open to increasing numbers of visitors from around the world. To support that work, and to provide for our visitors’ security, we must rely on income from sightseeing.
Open For Prayer
If you enter the church to pray, your donation is most welcome, but not required.
A Holy Place
We ask that all who visit help preserve the sanctity of the church; in keeping with this, we request that men please remove hats, and that food and drink not be consumed in the church. Please do not leave your personal belongings unattended.
