Where We Wor­ship… And Who We Are: Christ Epis­co­pal Church and San Mar­cos

From New York-

We are the church with all the ban­ners and signs,” said The Rev­erend Su­san Cop­ley, Rec­tor of Christ Epis­co­pal Church on South Broad­way in Tar­ry­town. A rain­bow flag hangs in front of the church, and, among other signs that have graced the front wrought-iron fence over the years is one stat­ing “Im­mi­grants and Refugees Wel­come.”

Christ Church has a rich his­tory. Built of brick in 1837 in vil­lage Gothic Re­vival style, lu­mi­nous Vic­to­rian stained glass win­dows grace its walls. The founder of Amer­i­can lit­er­a­ture and his­to­rian, Wash­ing­ton Irv­ing, was a pa­tron and early war­den. (His pew is tucked into a cor­ner of the Church by the dec­o­rated Vic­to­rian bap­tismal font.)
