Welcome to Holy Trinity

Welcome to our website. We have much to be thankful for.  Let us be thankful for a God who loves us, forgives us, and listens to us!  Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends as well as to be thankful to a magnificent God for all the wonderful blessings He has bestowed upon us.  This season is not only a time food and feast; it’s a time to being thankful to our Creator.  A person who passes Thanksgiving without giving thanks to God in church is a person who just gorges himself or herself in Turkey. As the Pilgrims of the Plymouth colony gathered in 1621 after their first harvest and thanked God for their survival and their many gifts upon them, equally, we should gather in our homes in every corner of our country to express to God our Thanksgiving and appreciation for the abundance of love and the fruits of the earth that He has continually blessed us with.  

We also remember the Incarnation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. Christmas is coming and it’s a time of great love and joy. Not only is it a time of receiving, but giving.  Jesus even said that “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”  This is not a vain philosophy or high ideal, but the truth.  There is nothing like giving a gift to your fellow man.  Christ Himself was the ultimate giver, for He gave His own life so we can have life ever after.  Giving is the ultimate expression of faith and love for God.   Father Paul
