The Brides' Altar got its name because funds from all the weddings performed here substantially financed the altar. The altar is distinguished by a brilliantly colored triptych entitled The Betrothal of the Blessed Virgin and St. Joseph. Over the years, thousands of couples have been married here. Even today, some couples still choose to get married in front of our Brides' Altar!
Yesterday we celebrated Carlos's graduation from the Boys' Choir. Carlos had begun singing with us in our cherub choir, moved on to the Boys' Choir, and became head chorister for the last 3 years. He never missed a Sunday in the past 8 years! In the fall, he will be joining the Men's Choir. We are blessed by his presence!
Our Joseph Jefferson window tells the story of how The Church of the Transfiguration became known as The Little Church around the Corner.. . . . In 1870, when the actor George Holland died, his good friend Joseph Jefferson tried to have the actor buried at another church in Manhattan, and that church refused. Joseph Jefferson asked if there was any church that his friend could be buried in, and the priest replied I believe there is a little church around the corner that does that sort of thing. Jefferson replied If that be so, sir, then God bless the little church around the corner! #WindowWednesday
