That gorgeous Chestnut Street condo that Trinity Church bought just before Christmas? The 3,119-square-foot one with a guest cottage and private courtyard? The one that cost $3,600,000? That one. Members of the congregation have a mean case of buyer's remorse. "From the perspective of a young person confirmed at Trinity two years ago, I have been seriously questioning how the church can educate the next generation of Christians when it fails to practice what it preaches," one parishioner told The Globe's Lisa Wangsness. Others defended the purchase, saying it was necessary to give the church's rector a suitable residence in walking distance to work.
