New Italian Episcopal Church (1901)

The Italian Protestant Episcopal Church of San Salvatore is to have a new church edifice, to be erected on the site of the present See House at 29 Lafayette Place. The Diocesan Headquarters, however, will not be removed, but will be established in the new building and in an annex in the rear.

The building will be in the English late perpendicular Gothic style, and the façade will be considerably higher than that of the present structure. A feature will be a large window which will be expected to light almost the whole interior. Quarters will be provided for extensive institutional work similar to that of St. Bartholomew’s, Grace Chapel, and other parishes. There will be a gymnasium in the basement.

The Rev. Dr. George Nelson, for many years Superintendent of the City Mission Society, has resigned and will take charge of the new church. He has been preaching to the Italians in their native tongue for the last year.
