Our Rectory was built in 1831 to meet the demand for religious services in the neighborhood. We believe that the original Chapel was in what is now the Whelan Room. Many groups have met in this building, including sewing classes for girls and young women in 1907, The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee ( SNCC) met here; the early Vestry, including Clement Clark Moore, were in this building, and we are proud to have served our neighborhood from this building for 184 years.
At this time, the exterior structure of the roof and all four walls need to be repaired to stop leaks. The cost estimate for replacing the roof, rebricking, replacing the mortar, the chimneys and other masonry work is $1.5 million.
