Over 130 churches, synagogues and meeting houses throughout New York State—including many CNY Episcopal churches—will open their doors on May 20th and 21st for the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s annual Sacred Sites Open House Weekend. Spend a day or two exploring beautiful religious architecture and learning about these institutions’ important cultural and social programs.

This year’s theme, Stained Glass: Windows on this World and the Next, focuses on the significance and conservation of stained glass and windows in religious sites.
