Welcome to Holy Trinity Orthodox Church
We hope our website can acquaint you with our Parish. Though we are not a very large Orthodox community, by God's grace we have an active life of liturgical worship and social activities. Our life in Christ is the center of our parish community.
We seek to strengthen our life in Christ not only by our worship and fellowship, but also by learning more about our Christian faith and finding opportunities to serve our neighbor. By carefully and courageously practicing our faith we hope to grow strong in love and virtue. We seek to build the bonds of support that lead us to a deeper communion with God. Our parish exists for no other purpose than bringing us into communion with God through Christ our Lord in the Holy Spirit.
If you are from the Pocono Mountains and need a spiritual home or if you have moved to our area and are looking for a Church, please join us in our worship. We would be delighted to welcome you. We are a canonical Orthodox Church and believe that the fullness of the Apostolic faith is found in Orthodoxy.
Please 'come and see.'
