Island Made

This is a quilt block 12"x12" of Grosse Isle's third Anglican church, the Holy Trinity, which was built in 1928 after the second church blew off it's foundation on Grosse Isle North.

It was built in 1928 and has undergone renovations to the doorstep and the steeple. In the seventies someone decided that the original steeple was too high and became damaged by the high winds far too often so villagers were contracted to cut the steeple down. Most people say that the church is not as attractive as it once was because of the renovations.

The interior sports beautiful stained glass windows that were donated in memory of villagers and hard-wood stained walls, domed ceiling and floor. It also has the only pipe organ on the islands.

The photo to t
he right is how it looks now and the two below are stained glass windows from within.
