  • A Brief History of our Cathedral

    Holy Trinity Cathedral Parish traces its history to December 2, 1857, when the first Orthodox Society was founded in San Francisco. In those early years, the Orthodox population of the Bay Area was spiritually and sacramentally served by chaplains from Russian Navy ships that frequented San Francisco Bay. During the Holy Week of 1868, an Orthodox Priest was sent to the City from Alaska to conduct the Paschal services here... Read More

    In August, we will celebrate two Great Feasts of the Church: the Transfiguration of our Lord God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Dormition of Our Most-holy Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-virgin Mary.  The first of these feasts commemorate the events described by the Evangelists Matthew (17:1-13) and Luke (9:28-36).  In view of his approaching death on the cross, the Lord revealed to His chosen disciples the voluntary character of His passion and death....

  • The Dormition of the Theotokos

    "And Mary said: 'My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.' From her childhood her entire life was dedicated to God. Her very birth from the childless and elderly parents was a miraculous one. From her infancy her home was the Temple, where she was presented at the age of three years, and was totally dedicated to God..."  Read more as we celebrate the falling asleep of the Theotokos, Mary, the Mother of God.

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. This is particularly significant in that the Trinitarian understanding of the Godhead based upon the revelation of God, is uniquely Christian. The Orthodox Church has often been referred to as "the Church of the Holy Trinity" because of her commitment to the critical necessity of maintaining the Trinitarian faith. If God is One yet Three Persons as He has revealed Himself to be, and if we are created in the image and likeness of God, then understanding and living out this Trinitarian nature is critical to our life and faith...

August 6: The Transfiguration of Our Lord

In August, we will celebrate two Great Feasts of the Church: the Transfiguration of our Lord God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Dormition (Falling Asleep) of Our Most-holy Lady the Theotokos and Ever-virgin Mary.  The first of these feasts commemorate the events described by the Evangelists Matthew (17:1-13) and Luke (9:28-36).  In view of his approaching death on the cross, the Lord revealed to His chosen disciples the voluntary character of His passion and death.  His bright transfiguration on Mount Tabor assured the witnesses that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is truly His Father's radiance, the Deliverer Who freely, out of His love for us, undersigned our terrible debt of sin for which He paid with His most pure blood.  And He did it freely, voluntarily, out of love...
