Jesus kept his invitation simple.
At Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, so do we.
Just “come and see.”

"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!

What Kind of Fruit Do You Bear?

On this month's August 6 celebration of the Transfiguration of Christ Jesus (Matthew 17:1-9), Orthodox Christians have a custom of blessing fruit (home-grown or store-bought) in church.

Why fruit on this holy day? Because fruit is an example of transfiguration: a seed grows into a plant that bears a flower that brings forth fruit. As followers of Jesus, we too are called to undergo transfiguration, growing ever more Christlike and bearing "the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control" (Galatians 5:22-23).

"Every tree is known by the fruit it bears," Jesus said. "No healthy tree bears bad fruit, and no unhealthy tree bears good fruit" (Luke 6:43-44). So let's all work "bear fruit befitting repentance" (Matthew 3:8) — attitudes and actions that blossom from changed hearts and minds aligned with God’s will, not human willfulness!
