"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.

"Christ our Passover..." (1 Corinthians 5:7). Sound like a strange label for Christ Jesus? Well, that's where our word Pascha (Pasch in dictionary English) comes from: Greek Paskha, from Hebrew Pesakh, means Passover. That Biblical name for the holiday also known as "Easter" better highlights its meaning, for our celebration of Jesus rising from death is our Christian Passover! While Passover celebrates how Moses and the Hebrew people passed from slavery over to freedom in the Exodus, Pascha celebrates how Jesus passed from death over to life in his resurrection, in the process freeing humankind held hostage by sin and death. So sings the Church on this feast of feasts and holiest of holy days: "It is the Day of Resurrection… It is Pasch, the Lord's Passover — for from death to life, from earth to heaven Christ our God has led us who now sing this victory song!"
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.
