Holy Trinity Orthodox Church - Western Rite Orthodox
Holy Trinity is the first Orthodox presence in the county of King William which was founded in 1702. As a Mission of ROCOR’s Western Rite Holy Trinity is a place where people are invited to come and worship in a way very similar to ways in which their ancestors may have worshiped before the Protestant Reformation in England and throughout Western Europe. All services are in English with occasional minor use of both Greek and Latin. Portions of the liturgy are sung and hymns, antiphons, and anthems are also a part of our worship.
The purpose of Holy Trinity is to bring the uncompromising Word of God and His Sacraments to the people of King William and surrounding areas. As a liturgical Church there are plenty of opportunities for participation for laymen. Holy Trinity is committed to being a place of spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical healing through living into the life of Christ.
We are a small mission but we hope to attract those who are serious about becoming more devout Christians through prayer, the study of Holy Scripture, and the liturgical life of The Church. We hold weekly Christian Education classes (Sunday School) and we have a lively group of developing scholars who meet weekly on Thursday Evenings to learn more about Scripture, Christian Spirituality, and the history of The Church.
We meet on Sunday Mornings at the Crossroads Mission Center next to the Upper King William Library. We have a coffee hour after each Sunday Service. We also worship on Holy Days as scheduled. If you want to belong to a Christian family that is unchanging and unashamed of the Name of Jesus, then come and visit us. We may be just what you are looking for.
“Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, ‘We have found Him of Whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.’ Nathanael said to him, ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ Philip said to him, ‘Come and see.’”
