Welcome to Holy Trinity

We gather for worship on Saturday evening and on Sunday Morning. We are old. We are young. We are middle aged. Some are married, some are single. Many of us have come to the Orthodox Church after years of searching. The Orthodox Church is the historical Church, which was founded on the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem and spread throughout Judea and finally the world. In our services we celebrate the great truths of the Christian Faith.

Holy Trinity Cathedral is named after the Godhead; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

The first Sunday after Pentecost is dedicated to the memory of All Saints.  At Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended upon Christ's disciples, thus baptizing the Holy Church.  The presence of the Holy Spirit is manifested by its fruits.  Saints are those who bore these fruits, in every generation they were well pleasing to God; therefore, it is very logical to celebrate their memory immediately after the Feast of Pentecost ...
