“Trinity Chapel was offered to the Serbs as well as to the Russian and Greek Orthodox communities. It was decided to sell the property to the Serbs for several reasons: 1) the Serbian people had no church on the east coast of America; 2) the project had the support of Yugoslav King Peter II; 3) the long-standing relationship of St. Bishop Nikolai with the Anglican Church in England and his particularly close connections with Bishop Manning and Canon Edward West.”
