Welcome to Holy Trinity

We gather for worship on Saturday evening and on Sunday Morning. We are old. We are young. We are middle aged. Some are married, some are single. Many of us have come to the Orthodox Church after years of searching. The Orthodox Church is the historical Church, which was founded on the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem and spread throughout Judea and finally the world. In our services we celebrate the great truths of the Christian Faith.

Holy Trinity Cathedral is named after the Godhead; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. This is particularly significant in that the Trinitarian understanding of the Godhead based upon the revelation of God, is uniquely Christian. The Orthodox Church has often been referred to as "the Church of the Holy Trinity" because of her commitment to the critical necessity of maintaining the Trinitarian faith.

Holy Trinity celebrates Mother of God and visit of special icon on July 29

Icon of the Theotokos Our Lady of Czestochowa The faithful of Holy Trinity Cathedral and Bay Area parishes are honored to welcome the pilgrimage icon of the Most Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary of Częstochowa.  This icon is a faithful replica of the world-famous "Black Madonna" icon.  Tradition recalls that this icon was painted by the Apostle Luke 2000 years ago.  The visit is part of a global pilgrimage that began in January 2012 on Russia's Pacific Coast and has encompassed 26 countries so far.  The pilgrimage is entitled "From Ocean to Ocean" and seeks to unite Christians in prayer for the sanctity of life.  His Eminence, Archbishop Benjamin, will preside at the singing of the Akathistos Hymn to the Mother of God at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, July 29 at Holy Trinity Cathedral (1520 Green Street, San Francisco).  Parking is available in the St. Brigid School lot beginning at 5:00 PM.  Please take advantage of this opportunity -- on the eve of the Dormition Fast -- to be with your brothers and sisters in Christ for this special occasion as we host this icon and strengthen our understanding and devotion to the Mother of God, her Son, and the sanctity of all human life.
