Living Stones is focused on two primary projects that will benefit downtown Lafayette, Indiana.
Trinity owns the largest tract of green space in a 16 square block area of downtown Lafayette. This area is an incredible opportunity for downtown residents, visitors, and employees to visit and recharge to escape the noise and concrete of downtown.
Building on the success of Trinity's community garden, Living Stones is working to add native landscaping, fruit trees, and a path that will include benches and artwork for the downtown community to enjoy. We envision this area being a gathering place for neighborhood events and a true asset to the Centennial Neighborhood.

Trinity's stained glass windows were designed by renowned local artist Edna Browning Ruby. (Check out ArtSmart Indiana's activities on Ruby's work!) At the time of her death, Ruby was internationally recognized as one of the only female stained glass artists. The stained glass windows are not only works of art, they are a piece of history.
Over the next two years, Living Stones will be raising funds to restore these beautiful, historic pieces. In order to restore and repair our 74 windows, each piece of glass is removed and cleaned before being releaded.
