Urban Oyster NYC Walking Tours

"From Breweries in Brooklyn to Food Carts in Midtown to Green Buildings at the Navy Yard, Urban Oyster tours take you to the heart of the neighborhoods of New York City, where you get to know the people and businesses that make the city tick."  Nearly every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year, Most Holy Trinity--St. Mary is a stop on Urban Oyster's "Brewed in Brooklyn Tour."  Those who come to us on the tour explore the history and architecture of our late-19th century church.  They are told about parish of the mid-1800s, and in particular about its German and Irish roots. The visitors are also told about more recent immigrants who have come to our community and about the vibrant parish that we are today.  We are very pleased to be partners with Urban Oyster and to welcome the many visitors they bring to us!

Our parish is affiliated with a Latino youth movement called the “Jornadas de Vida Cristiana” (i.e., the “Journey of the Christian Life”); the movement itself is closely associated with the “Cursillos de Cristiandad” (i.e., the “Little Courses of Christianity”), a related movement serving adult Catholics.
