"Come and see" was Jesus' invite for the curious back in his day (John 1:39) — and it's ours at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church today.
We're a little church with a big heart and room for all, where Jesus nourishes modern lives through ancient roots, as a parish of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of North America within the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
So just come and see, as Jesus said. Check us out. We're looking forward to meeting you!
This Christmas, celebrate the reason for the season — Christ Jesus — with us with Compline, Carols, and Divine Liturgy at 9 a.m. on Sunday, December 25, 2022! The more, the merrier! Come, rejoice!

"Remember how generous the Lord Jesus was: he was rich, but he became poor for your sake, to make you rich out of his poverty" (2 Corinthians 8:9).
That's how Saint Paul the Apostle summed up the mystery of the incarnation — God becoming human in the birth of Christ Jesus — that we celebrate at Christmas.
A generation later, second-century bishop Saint Ireneaus of Lyons rephrased Paul even more boldly: "He who was the Son of God became the Son of Man, that man... might become a son of God."
And that is the meaning of Christmas! In Jesus, the heavenly God stooped down to our earthborn level and took his place among us humans hamstrung by sin and hostage to death. And by doing that, he bonded with us so that we might bond with him, making it possible for us, in return, to "share in God's nature" (2 Peter 1:4) and lay hold of his unending life and boundless love!
Christ Jesus is God's ultimate gift to humankind — the greatest Christmas gift ever! Come share that ever-living and life-changing gift with us in his church, through his word, his sacraments, and his values put into practice.
