The Apostle Simon

St Simon was one of the twelve Apostles – but perhaps the least well known - and received the Holy Spirit with the others on Pentecost.

Welcome to Holy Trinity Orthodox Church

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.

Diana's Anniversary

It was a year ago, July 2014, my mobile phone rang as I was driving to church. I answered, somewhat unusual in itself, but thought it must be a church related call, so I answered, albeit reluctantly.
 
The voice on the other end was of a woman who had mentioned she would be coming to Divine Liturgy that day. I welcomed her, and said our community would look forward to meeting her.


In Memoriam - Nicholas Kornilieff

Our dear brother, +Nicholas Kornilieff, 89, reposed in the Lord on Thursday morning, June 18, at 10:20AM. A life-long resident of Norwich, CT, Nick was a United States Navy Military Veteran.


Happy Mother's Day

Motherhood and apple pie are traditional symbols of wholesome American values, and this Sunday the focus was on motherhood.   Mother’s Day was celebrated at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church with great joy by parishioners and friends.


St Thomas Sunday & Easter Egg Hunt

Sunday, April 19 was certainly an eventful day for our parish. Not only did the community receive a beautiful icon of St Gregory Palamas on behalf of Bessie Liapes but we also welcomed Katrina Fetzko back after an extended absence while recuperating from having her third child - John Michael Fetzko.
