Who we are

We confess Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. He is the way, the truth and the life: no one comes to God the Father but by him.

We confess only the heavenly doctrine contained in the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments in the Holy Bible.

We encourage personal piety, pastoral devotion, missionary zeal, and recovery of the beauty of worship. We affirm the continuity of apostolic succession having unbroken continuity with the historic Church of the past, and its continuing ministry in the present. We believe in episcopal order, and emphasize on the importance of the sacraments. We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, a collection of services, liturgies, prayers, and other important resources, to guide worship.

History of Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity Silver City

1881. The Sisters of Mercy had come to Silver City at the invitation of the local priest to start a school, which by 1915 had more than 100 students. The Mercy Sisters turned over Our Lady of Lourdes Academy to seven Sisters of St. Joseph of Tipton, Indiana., and their superior, Sister Mary Magdalen Thomas, in mid-1915. Aug. 26, 1915, they incorporated as the Sisters of St. Joseph of Silver City. They operated St. Joseph’s Hospital and sanatorium for three years while teaching school at the Academy, until financial hardships determined that the sanatorium be sold.”

1918. Early in the year, the sisters bought the 10-room Mission-style adobe home that the late Aubrey F. Lee had constructed in 1906 on the northwestern outskirts of town” at what is now 1801 N. Alabama St. That fall they opened St. Mary Magdalen’s Academy, a boarding school for girls. Monsignor William Wright purchased the neighboring Rufus Jackson mansion at 1809 N. Alabama St., and donated it to the Sisters of St. Joseph to serve as a dormitory for the boarding students. It was the largest private residence in Silver City when it was built in 1910, and was renamed Marian Hall. Wright’s parsonage called the “Joseph House” was built between the two older homes in 1918.

1922. Fire destroyed the10-room mission-style adobe Aubrey F. Lee mansion, the main building. The sisters rebuilt their convent, school and the current chapel, and their numbers never grew to more than 21 sisters in 1923. Financial hardship required Sister Magdalen to affiliate with another community of Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.

1926. January, the 26th, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Silver City and their properties in New Mexico officially merged with the Concordia community. From the late 1920s and ‘30s, St. Mary’s Academy, served as a boarding school and eventually a high school.

1940s. St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church opened another parochial school that was staffed by Sisters of St. Joseph.
1966. St. Mary’s and St. Vincent de Paul merged into one parochial school.
Mid-1970s. The landmark buildings on Alabama Street housed a birthing center. In 1973, a lay board took over the combined school and operated it until 1980.
Late 1980s. Marian Hall became El Refugio, a shelter for victims of domestic violence.

1990. The Guadalupe Montessori School moved to the St. Mary’s campus.
2006. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia celebrated their 80th anniversary of service in Silver City.
2011. The Anglicans began negotiations began toward the purchase of the property at St Mary’s Academy.

2014. Holy Trinity formally purchased 3.7 acres of the property of St Mary’s Academy. A ceremony was held to "transfer the Light" from the Catholics to the Anglicans. This included the chapel with the attached convent dormitory building, the Joseph House, and Marian Hall.   Edit
