HISTORIC TRINITY INC.

An extension of the programs and ministry of Historic Trinity Lutheran Church is carried out by Historic Trinity Inc., a Michigan non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. Leading citizens from the Detroit Metropolitan area serve as the Board of Directors of Historic Trinity Inc. They meet on a regular basis to assist Trinity in becoming a true ecclesiastical, cultural, community resource for metropolitan Detroit.

Downtown church facilities throughout America are faced with the challenge of redefining their role, obtaining support and developing programs as they move into the 21st century. Historic Trinity has become a role model for all of America.

Historic Trinity Inc. supervises the restoration and renovation of this historic cathedral so that future generations may share in this artistic, architectural treasure. It funds and operates the many outreach programs to the community. They are in the forefront of creating, experimenting, and developing cutting edge urban ministries for the next century. Collectively, they discuss, plan and create the innovative programs and ministries of Historic Trinity.

DAU CHURCH HISTORY LIBRARY

The Dau Church History Library of Historic Trinity is collecting materials on each past and present churches in the City of Detroit. Here history scholars, students and historians gather to research and compile the history of Detroit churches of all denominations. The Dau Church History Library is an emerging collection of histories, photos, maps, videos, artifacts, and oral histories of these Detroit churches. The Dau Church History Library, housed on the third floor of Otte Hall of Historic Trinity, is fast becoming the center for church history and preservation. The library works in close cooperation with other historical libraries and institutes.

SENIOR CITIZEN OUTREACH

Senior Citizen Outreach Program of Historic Trinity Inc. strives to meet the emotional, physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs of Senior Citizens in downtown Detroit. The staff and volunteers work to provide services that will enhance the quality of the lives of senior residents. Senior citizens who move into the many Senior Hi-Rise Buildings often shut themselves in their small apartments, leaving their secure environment only for the absolute necessities. In many ways these senior citizens have put themselves in "storage" in these Hi-Rise "warehouses". The staff, parish members and volunteers of Historic Trinity reach out with love and concern through a variety of programs to activate and motivate these senior citizens.

RESTORATION AND RENOVATION OF FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS

The Historic Trinity Inc. assists in the raising of funding for the restoration and renovation of the cathedral church, and assists in the leadership and development of groups and programs. The interior of the church continues to be restored, the lighting and sound system has been renovated and updated, the organ has undergone restoration, the stained glass windows have been restored, and the work goes on!
