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!

Putting in Time

There are 10,800 minutes in one week — and we're awake for 6,720 of them, more or less. Out of those 6,720, church gets around 90 for Divine Liturgy — with maybe 15 for the sermon. Over the other 6,630, media and marketing bombard us with messages, values, and attitudes often at odds with Christ Jesus'.

That puts the church at quite a disadvantage: 1.3% of our week versus 98.7%!

How much of that 98.7% between Sundays do we spend on building up our life in Christ through almsgiving, prayer, fasting, Bible reading, and spiritual endeavors?

As Metropolitan Nicholas of Amissos (1936-2011), late bishop of our diocese, lamented, nowadays people are more likely "catechized by the marketplace and violence" into being consumers lacking a moral compass, than by the church into being Christlike.

So then: "Be very careful how you liveā€¦ Use your time well, for these are evil times" (Ephesians 5:15-16).
