Kneeling Prayers of Holy Pentecost

At the end of the Divine Liturgy, we will pray the Kneeling Vespers of 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.

The Blessings of a Bi-Vocational Priesthood

With church memberships continuing to decline throughout the Orthodox Church, the viability of a bi-vocational priesthood increases daily. More clergymen are working outside the parish in order to provide for themselves financially, than at any other time.


Centennial Celebration Plans Well Underway

Plans for Holy Trinity's Centennial Celebration have been finalized and our small community works diligently and with love toward making it a memorable occasion.


Prosphora is the Bread of Prayer

Holy Trinity has a number of wonderful ministries.  These ministries offer our parishioners an opportunity to get involved in the life of the church in many ways.


Taste and See!

Have you ever wondered what people outside of Orthodoxy think of a worship service? How about first impressions? Recently Holy Trinity had the unique opportunity of welcoming a number of students from ECSU to experience Divine Liturgy as part of their coursework on Eastern Religions. Read more to learn about the class and their experience as seen through their eyes. Many thanks to the students for attending and allowing us to post their essays.
