Completed in 1869, Holy Trinity Church is the oldest, largest, and most elegant Anglican church in Shanghai. Locals refer to it as the ''Red Church'' because of its red brick walls.
I went twice there during the week for a visit and I was turned back. I was very disappointed since there seems to be so much suspicion amongst the staff for viewing the church. I was curtly told, "No visitors." If the church is a place of worship, why do they not allow a sanctuary to get away from the hectic city life, pray and seek inner peace. Is the church open for public viewing on Sundays during a service?
Is Anglican a catholic church too?
I am wondering when the Anglican Holy Trinity Church (or Cathedral) will re open. And will there be services in 2013 for Palm Sunday March 24 and Easter Sunday March 31
My Grandfather Edward Secretan and ny Grandmother Sophie Bauman were married in the Cathedral cica 1903-1904. Have the records for that period survived? I will be visiting Shanghai in April 2013.
May one visit this Cathedral? My mother was Baptised here in 1932. It was the church of my Grandparents. My grandmother was buried in Shanghai. Can anyone tell me what happened to the graves of the members of this church? Thank you so much.
