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!

Great Lent: Time to Get Back in Shape!

Fitness

Great Lent (March 2 through April 18 this year) — our prep time for celebrating the risen Christ on Pascha (April 19) — reminds us: God is big on clean slates, second chances, fresh starts, new chapters. He is all about do-overs and make-overs! And so Great Lent points us to the exercise program Jesus prescribed for our spiritual fitness: almsgiving, prayer, and fasting (Matthew 6:1-18). Those three core habits tame our egos and appetites to turn our attention more toward God and neighbor, in line with his message of selfless love. "Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is valuable in every way, because it promises life both for the present and for the future," the first Christians tell us (1 Timothy 4:8). So let's hit the reset button together and work with God and each other on our spiritual make-over this Great Lent — to get back in shape and become a healthier church on our way to Pascha!

A Word From Our Bishop About Great Lent
