Holy Trinity Orthodox Church has continued in its mission to be a light of Jesus Christ to those in eastern Connecticut for nearly 100 years. The transition over nearly ten decades however, is quite noticeable.
While Holy Trinity was built by our forefathers, often immigrants from Europe, the present day Holy Trinity community is now comprised on many young families, small children and teens, and has always received much support from the local universities.
Although Holy Trinity is a small parish, being small has great benefits. Parishioners feel important, needed, and are nourished in this type of small environment. Fr Marc is able to spend individual time with each person who comes to us. Not all small parishes are called by our Lord to be large parishes. We are comfortable being who we are, and feel being a smaller community has significant advantages.
An iconostasis of eight full-length icons done in the traditional Byzantine style with gold leaf, immediately captivates those who enter the church. 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. With a choir that sings all responses in English, it is easy to lay aside all earthly cares when one enters in the prayer of the church.
We extend a very warm invitation to join us for Divine Liturgy each Sunday morning at 9:30. Please stay with us for fellowship during Coffee Hour where light refreshments are served.
All liturgical services are in English. ALL are welcome.
Eulogy for Tom Shakun - 08/10/19
The church teaches that the life we are all called to is a life that is inseparable from God, and unconquered by death. However, in the normal course of human life, we grow old, our bodies decay and begin to fall away from us, and we die.
Farewell Reader Tikhon
Sunday, July 21, 2019, was a bittersweet day at Holy Trinity in Willimantic, Connecticut. After three years of meritorious service, our community bid a fond but sad farewell to Reader Tikhon (Erik T. Wallace, Ph.D.). In May, 2019, Dr Wallace had finished a three-year teaching Fellow in the Mathematics Department at the University of Connecticut. He has accepted a tenured track position at Harbin University in northern China beginning in September.
Congratulations Jon and Merci
The Holy Trinity community recognized Mr & Mrs Jon (Merci) Matcheson on the occasion of the 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday, July 7, 2019. They were united in Holy Matrimony on July 7, 1979.
Sarah Jacobson who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Connecticut on May 11, 2019, was honored by the Holy Trinity Church community the previous Sunday (May 5). Sarah, whose home is in Arlington, Virginia, faithfully and joyfully attended Holy Trinity during her four years as an undergraduate on the Storrs campus. Even during her final two summers when she lived in off-campus housing, Sarah would find a way to get to Divine Liturgy.
