To Conserve, Restore, and Revitalize the Holy Trinity Cathedral Heritage site in New Westminster, British Columbia.
Reconstructed after the Great New Westminster Fire of 1898, Holy Trinity is a historic parish, established in 1859, and is one of the first in the Mainland Colony of British Columbia.
It is of heritage value for its association with Colonel Richard C. Moody of the Royal Engineers, who chose the location of the church in his original plan for the City.
The first incarnation of this building was constructed of wood and burned in 1865, just five years after its completion. Its replacement was in sandstone, but even that could not withstand the Great New Westminster Fire of 1898 with exception of the Bell Tower, which remains today.
Faith based institutions play a significant role in the development of a holistic community and Holy Trinity Cathedral is well aligned with current City of New Westminster and senior government policies and strategies regarding the impact of heritage preservation. Other critical functions provided by HTC include:
The Parish is challenged by its current outdated facilities, aging infrastructure and high costs of rehabilitation.
This project will allow the historic HTC Parish to remain in its current location, and provide improved and expanded facilities for community use and outreach.
We are concerned citizens of New Westminster and the surrounding areas. As members of this Parish we wish to see HTC continue to be a social pillar of the community providing stability as well as community resource of great public and historic pride benefiting all citizens of New Westminster.
We would love to see the City of New Westminster come together and support this incredible project. To help with our goal we would love you to:
