This year’s topic celebrates the 320th anniversary of Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church in Wilmington and the ways in which this church has kept Swedish heritage alive in Delaware.

Speakers include experts in church’s furniture and furnishings, early church graffiti, and its Swedish pastors. Following the conference, attendees have the option to meet at Holy Trinity for a behind-the-scenes tour of one of America’s oldest churches.
