Modeled after the great Gothic Churches of Europe, Holy Trinity was built in 1906 by Polish immigrants to serve the Greater Utica Area. Constructed of steel and Gouverneur Granite, Holy Trinity is the only solid stone Roman Catholic Church in the Utica area and has been known as a prototype for other impressive Churches such as Sacred Heart Basilica in Syracuse. With the ability to accommodate over 1000, Holy Trinity historically became known as the "cradle" of several Catholic Parishes and a "Mother Church of Polonia" for Central New York.

With two 80-foot high spires, and a 54-foot high interior, adorned with numerous angels above, Holy Trinity is truly magnificent throughout and described by the well known late Monsignor Adolf Kantor as "awesome." Religious artwork enhances the Church, most notably the large Sanctuary with a ceiling described by some as a "glimpse into Heaven."

The grounds of the Holy Trinity campus include two historic statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary made of carrara marble from Italy as well as the original Church Bell from 1896. The parish also houses a relic of Saint Stanislaus Kostka.
Holy Trinity's solid marble altar includes statues of Saints Peter and Paul with a background of numerous large murals of St. John, St. Michael and several biblical events.
One of Holy Trinity's unique treasures is the 1927 Grand Organ, fully functional and maintained as one of the finest such instruments in Central New York.
The Sanctuary is further beautified by side altars of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Fourteen hand painted and carved Stations of the Cross are displayed around the Church interior.
