The Final Judgment

Orthodoxy teaches that salvation is bestowed by God as a free gift of Divine grace, which cannot be earned, and by which forgiveness of sins is available to all.

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.

Barbara's Decorative Quilts

The quilt work of Barbara E. Lacey now adorns the church hall at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, Willimantic, Connecticut.
 
Dr Lacey had spent the past several months making two quilts for the area behind what we refer to as the Coffee Hour table. The quilts were brought to the church on the First Sunday of Lent, and hung for all to see. The quilts are quite beautiful, the detail and colors so complementary.


HTOC Scout Sunday

Again this year Holy Trinity observed Scout Sunday among the members who belong to local troops/packs or Nipmuck District BSA. Membership is down this year due to the relocation of two Scout families and the entry of two older Boy Scouts into college.


Bowling Night

Several members of Holy Trinity met for an evening of fun and bowling at Spare Time Lanes in Vernon, CT.
