"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!
Visit us 9:30 Sunday mornings at 11200 Elgin Boulevard in Spring Hill, Florida for worship and fellowship.

On Pentecost this month (June 20), we'll celebrate how God's Spirit came down upon the risen Christ's gathered followers in Jerusalem as wind and fire (Acts 2:1-47). What does that pairing tell us about God?
Well, just as our hands can't clench wind or fire in their grip, God is beyond the grasp of our hearts and minds. But if we unfurl our sails, they can catch the wind, which will drive our boats to our destination. And if we touch our candles to flame, they can catch the fire, and it will light our path.
So it is with God: if we open ourselves to his Spirit through almsgiving, prayer, fasting, and churchgoing, he will propel us and enlighten us on our pilgrimage through life's high and lows, leading us into the future God dreams for us as individuals and a church family. Let's strive to catch his Spirit together!
In celebration of Pascha (May 2), our bishop, Metropolitan Gregory of Nyssa, head of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of North America, offers insight and inspiration in his letter for this feast of Christ Jesus rising from death.
