Students at Sacred Heart High School in Mr. Fran Embardo’s Church History class recently visited several churches in the Waterbury area to get a tour of the beautiful and diversified architecture the city is noted for.

At Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Father Perikles Kallis gave the students a wonderful tour of their Byzantine style church and explained the use of icons in the church and their significance. He also explained how the dome (a feature in Eastern Churches) helps to amplify the voice of the priest – especially useful in the days before microphones. One of the other churches visited was All Saints Todos los Santos/Saint Anne’s Shrine to All Mothers. Here the students learned it was built in French Gothic style architecture. Students were able to see the characteristic pointed arches, lofty bell towers, and the decorations that characterize a Gothic Church.
