Welcome to our website.
We hope it is helpful. If you are
contemplating a first or return visit to
an Orthodox Church, or if you are
travelling and looking for a home
away from home, we sincerely hope
you will join us where two or three are

March 1: Harvest Sunday Collection

Sunday after next (March 1) we will have the first of three Harvest Sundays scheduled for the year - our church's tithe to missionary or philanthropic work that generally has a special personal connection to our parish. We also fund our monthly subscription to the work of FOCUS out of Harvest Sunday collections. (Click here to learn more about our Harvest Sunday tradition.)

This March 1, the major beneficiary of our Sunday offering will be The Lift, a Payne Avenue service ministry to our church's neighborhood. The ministry evolved when several families from Woodland Hills Church (on the St Paul-Maplewood border) moved into Holy Trinity's neighborhood and began to provide academic, financial, and life skills support from within our shared East Side community. Over the past ten years the director, Sandra Unger, has had numerous interactions with Fr. Jonathan and other Orthodox clergy in St Paul, and she also spoke at our neighborhood outreach gathering in Archangel Michael Hall, coordinated by Jane Yank a couple of years ago.

March 22: Lenten Vespers at Holy Trinity

On Sunday, March 22, Holy Trinity is hosting Lenten Vespers, including the meal afterward. As in the past, we will be offering platters of hors d'oeuvres and finger foods, all Lenten of course. We are in the early stages of planning, and if you have any suggestions or would like to be involved, talk to Mina Jacobs, Barb Pentecost, or Joanne Bergman.

March 1: Sunday of Orthodoxy Procession

Children and youth of our parish are invited to participate as icon bearers in the procession at the end of Liturgy this Sunday. We will gather in the church basement for opening prayers at 9 a.m. and then practice in the sanctuary. A short church school lesson will follow. Please plan to come if you can. Icons will be provided, or you may bring one from home if you prefer.

The Joys and Struggles of Raising our Orthodox Children to Orthodox Adulthood

We all want to pass along our faith and values to our children and encourage them to grow in the church. But how exactly do we do that?

Continuation of "Eastern Orthodox-Catholic Unity"

For a second week, Michael Lotti will lead a discussion on Orthodox-Catholic unity, with a focus on what a unified church would look like.

(Do you have an idea or an interest in presenting a topic or leading a discussion for the adult class? )
