In the aftermath of 9/11, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s became sanctuaries for those seeking consolation after the destruction of the Twin Towers. For eight months after the attacks, “the little chapel that stood” was home to an extraordinary volunteer relief effort, becoming a place of renewal and inspiration for Ground Zero’s physically and spiritually weary.
