Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church, former location of (Holy Trinity Episcopal Church), Gillette Wyoming
When I took this photograph, it was the location of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Gillette, Wyoming. As noted at the time, I had no idea how old the structure of the church was. An addition, not visible here, to the back side looked to be a rectory.
Since I took this photo, the Church structure sold to the Antiochian Orthodox parish in Gillette, and this Church is now Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church. I don't know where the Episcopal parish formerly located here is now located. The pastor of this church informs me that it has been redone inside, in keeping with Orthodox traditions, and he was graciously allow me to photograph the interior in the future.
I'm updating, and reposting, this entry, as I was traveling through Gillette recently and found that this location was for sale, and therefore pretty clearly no longer the location of Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church. Emailing the pastor, I was provided with the new location. I'll keep this entry up, as this was a church, but it is no longer the location of this church.
The old text noted:
This unusual church is Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church in Gillette, Wyoming. It's very obviously in a converted storefront, but I have included it as the church went to the extent of construction a dome, as we might expect to see on an Orthodox Church.This Antiochian Orthodox Church is the only Antiochian Orthodox Church in Wyoming, and one of only four Orthodox churches in the state.
