Wonders of the Small Church

The small church has incredible importance and value, although it may not carry the pomp of churches in Europe and elsewhere. I have one particular small church in mind: ours.

An Invitation to Join Us

Holy Trinity Orthodox Church has continued in its mission to be a light of Jesus Christ to those in eastern Connecticut for over 100 years.

While Holy Trinity was built by immigrant forefathers from Europe, the present day Holy Trinity community is comprised of young families with small children. For the past two decades we have received unwavering support from the college students who comprise the Orthodox Christian Fellowship at the University of Connecticut. Our Saint Olympia Handmaiden Ministry continues to flourish as five young girls serve alongside the traditional male altar server.

Holy Trinity is a small parish, but being small has great benefits. Parishioners feel important, needed, and are nourished in this type of environment, where Father Marc is able to spend individual time with each person. We are comfortable being who we are, and understand that being a smaller community has significant advantages.

An iconostasis done in the traditional Byzantine style with gold leaf is stunning. The beautiful lime wood hand-carved Royal Doors (“Beautiful Gate”) done in Sofia, Bulgaria, serves as an invitation to enter into the Kingdom of God, and eight full length icons done on canvas of early church fathers & mothers, adorn the east and west walls. With a choir that sings in English, it is easy to lay aside all earthly cares when one enters into prayer at Holy Trinity.

We extend a warm invitation to worship with us for Divine Liturgy each Sunday morning at 10:00, then join us for fellowship during Coffee Hour where light refreshments are served.

All liturgical services are in English. ALL are welcome.

Blessing Bag Event

On Sunday, May 7, 2023, the Holy Trinity Church School students, along with their students, assembled Blessing Bags, filled with items that were donated by those from the Holy Trinity Community, and supporters of our community as well.

Lenten Blessing Bag Project

A Lenten church school project that will have our children assemble blessing bags for the homeless. This effort is being spearheaded by Andrea Dziadul. If anyone is inclined to pick up one of the items in bulk, please let Andrea know, so that others can concentrate on other items. A financial gift to assist would be welcome as well. Please support our church school program' its teachers and students.
