Today St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, at Clinton and Montague streets, was made a Pro-Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island. As a Pro-Cathedral, it will serve as a secondary seat from which the Bishop may officiate. The celebration of this event began with a procession (photo) beginning at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade and continuing along Montague to Clinton and the church.
Once in the church, the celebration continued with an evensong service. In his remarks, Bishop Lawrence Provenzano noted that Holy Trinity, as the church was known before the merger with St, Ann’s, was the original cathedral of the Diocese of Long Island. He was delighted to make it a Pro-Cathedral in recognition of the importance of Brooklyn and Queens in the diocese.
