Wonders of the Small Church

The small church has incredible importance and value, although it may not carry the pomp of churches in Europe and elsewhere. I have one particular small church in mind: ours.

In keeping with the theme of the Nativity season, the Holy Trinity children, teens, and young adults performed a play, “The Friendly Beasts”, after Divine Liturgy on Sunday, December 22, 2013. Those who participated acted out the Nativity account as recorded in the Gospels according to St Matthew and St Luke.

The play was directed by Mrs Bonnie Morrison who also made several of the costumes. The Holy Trinity community is grateful for Bonnie’s continual building up of our community.

Those who participated in the play included Nik Hutnik, Patrick Dolan, Amadeo Rui, Madegan and Maya Morrison, Vadim Kurochkin, Anastasia, Tatiana, and Nikolai Friar, Alexander  Fetzko, and five-month old Natalia Zadrozny who took on the role of the infant Jesus.

Visiting with us on Sunday were native son Deacon Andrey Sukharev, his parents, Viktor and Paraskeva, and the Friar Family – Anna (nee Sukharev), Aaron, Anastasia, Tatiana, Nikolai, and Alexandra – who came down for Divine Liturgy from their home in Boston, MA.

There was great joy in our church Sunday with so many friends gathered together in Christian love and fellowship.

At the conclusion of Coffee Hour, 10 members from Holy Trinity then visited a local family from Willimantic who we had taken on as part of our church’s involvement in the Windham Area Interfaith Ministry’s “Adopt A Family” program. In addition to many gifts donated by our own parish community, we were able to give our family $520 in cash and gift certificates to local stores. This was the fourth consecutive year we have adopted a local family in need.

Continued thanks to Dot and Nick SInchuk who spearhead this effort for our community.
