Friends of Old Trinity Church

Annual Meeting & Luncheon

8th Sunday after Pentecost, July 14, 2024

You are cordially invited to join us on Sunday, July 14, for the annual meeting and luncheon of the Friends of Old Trinity Church (Old Trinity Church Association, Inc.) following our regularly scheduled service at 11:00 am.


Colonial American Church Architecture & the Faith that Founded a Nation

Old Trinity's rector, Fr. Dan Dunlap, will be giving an abridged version of his May 2024 South Dorchester Folk Museum presentation about colonial church architecture, using Old Trinity Church as an example of the kind of structure that reflected the religious sensibilities of the first Europeans who arrived on these shores.

Old Trinity stands today as one of the oldest church buildings in the nation still used for regular worship. Perfectly restored in the 1950s to approximate its colonial origins, Old Trinity provides a unique window into the religious context of colonial Maryland, while also making it an interesting case study to better understand the faith that founded a nation.


The Rev. Daniel Dunlap currently serves two area churches: Old Trinity Church (as rector) and St. John's Chapel in Cornersville. He also serves as Canon Theologian for the Episcopal Diocese of Easton and Dean of Iona Eastern Shore, an affiliate program of the Iona Collaborative of the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, TX.
