Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Weston, MO

Holy Trinity in Weston, Missouri is a unique neo-gothic limestone structure that dates from 1912. The parish itself, however is much older and can be traced back to 1842 - one of the oldest parishes in the Kansas City area.

While the church has a commanding presence on a hill above the town of Weston, the building is actually quite small.

Note the unique design of the sidewalls and roof structure.

The history of the parish is briefly described on an historical marker in front of the church.

I would assume that the altar is from the parish's previous church building, as it is primarily Romanesque in design, while the church itself is Gothic.

The windows contain various scriptural and doctrinal symbols. This particular window depicts symbols of Jesus' Passion.
