The Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity is a vibrant and active parish which has many opportunities for your involvement.  We believe that parish ministries are a call to serve and that stewardship is sacrificial giving of time, talent, and treasure.

Adult Catechism

The Adult Catechism classes are for those who are considering joining the Orthodox Church, as well as for those Orthodox Christians who would like to learn more about their faith. Under the direction of Father George Malanos, the class is an 8 week series of 45 minute classes which are held in the Fall and Winter on Sundays at 12:30pm in the church. A folder of reading material is provided that guides the discussion each week. Special arrangements are made for those unable to attend on Sunday afternoons.


Crisis Ministry - Matthew 25

"For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink. I was a stranger and you took Me in. I was naked and you clothed Me. I was sick and you took care of Me. I was in prison and you visited me. And the King will answer them, I assure you: whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me." -Matthew 25:35-36,40

The Matthew 25 ministry is an extension of so many programs at Holy Trinity.  We strive to follow what God has called for us to do for our neighbors. Previously we have served in the Crisis Ministries soup kitchen as a group. This organization has made some changes and while still taking volunteers, we are unable to do so as a group. If you are interested in volunteering on an individual basis you may do so online at one80place.org. Please stay tuned for more outreach opportunities to come.
