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!

Let Freedom Ring!

Fourth of July

This month, on the Fourth of July, we celebrate the independence of the United States and the American ideal of liberty. It's a fitting occasion to recall what the earliest Christian voices tell us about freedom. Paul says: "You have been called to live in freedom. But don't use your freedom as an excuse to indulge your selfish impulses. Instead, use your freedom to serve each other in love" (Galatians 5:13). Peter echoes him: "Live like free people, but don't use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. Live as people who are serving God" (1 Peter 2:16). For Christians, freedom is never no-holds-barred leeway to indulge individual whims and wants regardless of others, but a gift to be used with God and neighbor ever in mind — in line with Christ Jesus' message of selfless love.

Update: Church Reopenings

As part of our diocese's methodical process to assess the possibility of reopening churches on a parish by parish basis, ours has submitted the information requested. The final decision lies with no one other than our bishop, whose word, guidelines, and clergy assignment we await. We all want to be back in church, but given the utter seriousness of this lethal virus 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 continued patience, prayers, and support amid these unprecedented circumstances! We'll keep you posted...
