Trinity Episcopal Church
We went by to see the Trinity Episcopal Church in Covington, Ky. This is a beautiful church. It was founded in 1842, Trinity Episcopal Church is a vibrant community of worshippers committed to outreach work within Covington and beyond. The currant building was constructed between 1857 and 1859 and is an excellent example of Gothic Revival style, showing the influence of medieval designs on Anglican church building during that period. Transitionally oriented with the entrance motifs on the west and the sanctuary on the east, the building is cruciform in shape, but only the south transept completed. The inside includes a brass pulpit, a wood "eagle" lectern, and wood carvings. A Tiffany designed window lights the transept. There is three tranquil gardens, maintained by church members, provide a welcome respite to all visitors. The church is located at 16 E. 4th Street Covington, Kentucky.
