  • The Bells of Holy Trinity

    The seven bells of Holy Trinity Cathedral are one of our great civic and ecclesiastical treasures. Five of the seven were a gift from Tsar Alexander III of Russia in thanksgiving for the miraculous preservation of his life (and those of his family) from an assassination attempt. Two other bells were locally recast by Garrett & Co. from older bells that melted during one of several fires that seriously damaged the temple in the course of the years...  Read more...

In the New Year...

As we switch our calendars over to 2014, let us take a few moments to fill in our paper and digital calendars with dates that are our first priorities.

Forgiveness Vespers, the beginning of Lent, will occur on the Sunday, March 2 at 6 PM. Each member of our parish should be present for this important and moving rite so that we can enter the Fast together. Clean week will be March 3-7.  Make a goal for yourself: to attend church at least once per day this week.  We have services three times a day during this opportunity to "purify our senses."

The Pascha of the Lord: His Last Supper, His Crucifixion, His Burial, and His Rising is celebrating April 17-20Now is the time to ask for time off from work and to notify loved ones, etc. that you have appointments that cannot be changed.

Our parish feast day, Pentecost, will be celebrated June 7-8. We experience the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Church, our parish, and ourselves as individuals in Holy Chrismation. We do not miss our family and friends' birthday parties -- this is the right weekend to be with your parish family.

Those with families or children can make a fun exercise of planning the year and being purposeful with our time by making family calendars, etc.  You can also check out great online resources such as OCA.Org or the "Online Chapel" of the Greek Archdiocese.
