Holy Trinity Orthodox Church
Welcome to our website.
We hope it is helpful. If you are
contemplating a first or return visit to
an Orthodox Church, or if you are
travelling and looking for a home
away from home, we sincerely hope
you will join us where two or three are
gathered in His name, in one place.

May 18: Men's Fellowship

The men's fellowship breakfast is this Saturday (May 18) at 7:30 am. We're meeting at Archangel Michael Hall. A light breakfast (eggs and bacon with coffee) will be served. All HTOC men are invited to attend. 

May 18: Garden Workday

Join us this Saturday (May 18) for a short garden workday, from 9 am to noon!

We’ll tackle the jobs left from our first workday:
  • pounding stakes and zip-tying the chain
  • remulching the pathways (our mulch delivery has arrived!)
  • heaping compost to garden beds

And of course, feel free to come and work in your own garden bed - it is planting time! Dana Johnson will be in the garden by 9 am but you’re welcome to start earlier. We won’t do a lunch this time, but feel free to bring a snack to share while we’re working. Email (stpauldana@gmail.com) or call/text (651-431-0356) Dana with any questions. Hope to see you there!

(PS from Abby Hansen: If you do get to planting your beds this week, please use as much compost as you can from the pile under the tarp. Heap it up! We need to decrease the size of this pile; it's ugly and in the way.)

May 19: Tomatoes Seedings (Camp Fundraiser)

Tomato seedlings will be on sale again this Sunday, at coffee hour, to raise funds for summer camp scholarships.  If you regularly grow tomatoes in your garden, please plan ahead and consider buying seedlings at church to help send kids to camp. If you do not regularly grow tomatoes please still consider buying seedlings at church to help send kids to camp! Tomatoes are easy and enjoyable to grow. There will be patio-sized plants for growing in pots as well - no garden space necessary. See Elizabeth Saathoff with your questions, or email her

June 1: Annual Grounds Clean-up

A workday is scheduled on Saturday, June 1, to clean up the grounds around  our Parish. We'll be working from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Please brings rakes and shovels if you have them. Lunch (pizza and pop) will be served at 12 noon!

Holy Trinity Food Shelf

From Ronda Wintheiser: Thank you, again, to those of you who have so faithfully kept the food shelf stocked over the past several months. Currently, the cupboard is becoming a bit bare, though. We do have some canned, pre-cooked meals with pop tops, but we have run out of canned meat and fish, vegetables, fruits, beans, and soup. We could also use smaller containers of uncooked pasta and rice. When you do your grocery shopping this week, consider picking up a few containers to share with our neighbors! - thank you!

(Please contact Ronda Wintheiser with any questions or suggestions.)
