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 Christ 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 Christ Jesus said. Check us out. We're looking forward to meeting you!

Update: Church Reopenings

With an eye toward reopening our church, our parish council has researched safety guidelines for regathering. Volunteers have tidied up our house of worship and parish grounds. Professionals have worked on floor refinishing, pest control, air conditioning, and parish house repairs. We still await word about clergy assignment from our diocese, with whom our parish council has been in constant contact. And naturally we're keeping a wary eye on Florida's coronavirus surge, which is cause for deep concern. We all want to be back in church — but given the utter seriousness of this lethal disease with no vaccine or cure yet, it must be done as safely as possible, given the risk to health and life. Thank you for your patience, prayers, and support while we work and wait! "In God's peace, at God's pace..."
