Trinity Episcopal Cathedral
First Presbyterian Church
First Lutheran Church
The first English Evangelical Lutheran Church on Grant Street was the third church on our tour. “The first English-speaking Lutheran church west of The Alleghenies”, the beautiful stone church hosts holy Eucharist weekdays from 12:10pm -12:30pm for folks on their lunch breaks or for those that may be unable to go on Sundays.

The marble baptismal font in the southwest corner of the nave. In 1889, the angel font was the first work of art to be placed at the church.
So, what did we discover about these three churches on our walk? We learned that each religion has a way of incorporating beauty, history, and need into its church’s creation and each and every one way different from the other, but also maintained a common bond.
