It was Fr. John Meyendorff of happy memory who brought Holy Trinity to life during his sabbatical from St. Vladimir’s Seminary. He crowned the efforts of a small group of faithful (from area Greek and Russian parishes) striving to establish an English-language parish in the Reston-Sterling vicinity. Today we are a small, stable community, striving to bring Orthodox Christians together in English and believers to Orthodoxy. We have no ethnicity to speak of, yet in important ways we are more like a parish in the Orthodox world—in Athens, say, or Damascus, in Bucharest, or Kiev—than the local ethnic parishes are. Our goal is to embody the Orthodox Way in Protéstant America while giving ourselves to the renewal of church life our Bishops have called for. Our Priest Since 1978, Fr Paul N. Harrilchak has been the priest of the Holy Trinity faithful. He is the beneficiary of an education in the humanities. He studied Holy Scripture, Patristics and Christian Archeology, dogmatic and moral theology, church law and pastoral medicine at the Catholic University of America (Washington DC) and St Vladimir's Theological Seminary (Yonkers, NY, his hometown). Fr Paul was ordained deacon in 1966 and priest in 1978. He has penned two books for parishioners, one on the Liturgy (1984) and another on Confession (1996). He takes his light from the lamps of renewal: Frs Schmemann and Meyendorff, Fr Mateos, Fr Laurence, etc. He has consulted on matters of Liturgy with the monks of New Skete. The late Archbishop Paul of Finland has incorporated an important suggestion of his into the Finnish Liturgicon of 1985. Prof. John Erickson of St Vladimir's Seminary has written that Fr Paul "is perfectly at home with modern liturgical scholarship...And what is more important, he shows good sense when pursuing the implications of this scholarship for Orthodox worship today."

Christ is Risen! ☦️

On this past Thursday evening, Father George Kokhno hosted a Zoom discussion by Serge Schmemann on his Father's legacy to everyone and to the Church. It was one of the most interesting talks that I have heard because it centered on Father Alexander and his impact on people everywhere. Serge spoke from his life with Father Alexander. The people who were in the audience included may clergy who were greatly impacted by Father Alexander.

Readings for the seventh Sunday after the Pasch. With glory to God!

05/24/2020

With a little sadness, we post today's reading; the last week of the Pasch and we still are separated. We know, however, that this, too, shall pass. May you have a joyful day in which we proclaim, "Christ is Risen!" We surely can live it every day.

We are at the Fifth Sunday after the Pasch, and still not able to gather together. Let's rejoice in the Word! We offer the readings and prayers for the Lord's Day. Christ is Risen!

A long and peaceful life,
Success in every undertaking,
Grant to your servants, Lord,
the Mothers, Aunts, and Caregivers,
and grant them many happy, healthy years!

Through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Savior, save us!

Since the "diaspora" of our community during the Corona Virus, Father Paul has been sending weekly reading and prayers for us to use in our "little church" at home. As we read, our minds cannot help but bring the words to life in song, as if we were standing together in our beautiful church. Here are today's readings.

05/03/2020

Christ is Risen!
Father Paul sends out weekly readings for our community. Light a candle, read the readings, and sing along. It is amazing how the music is there in our heads.

"My Lord and my God!" Do we need to plunge our hand into the Lord's side and probe his wounds, like Thomas? Or, do we believe? "“Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” (Gospel of John)

[04/26/20]   "Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."

From Peter's First Epistle

CHRIST IS RISEN!

[04/19/20]   If anyone is pious and loves his God, let him enjoy this beautiful feast. If anyone is a faithful slave let him enter with joy into the joy of his Lord. If anyone has endured the hardships of fasting, let him now receive his reward. If anyone has labored from the first hour, let him receive today his just recompense. If anyone has come at the third hour, let him join with gratitude in the feast. If anyone has come after the sixth hour, let him not be upset; he will not be penalized. If anyone has delayed until the ninth hour, let him come without hesitation. If anyone has come just at the eleventh hour, let him not be perturbed at the lateness of the hour.

For the Lord is liberal and receives the last as the first. He gives to the one coming at the eleventh hour just as to the one working from dawn. He takes pity on the last to arrive, just as on the first; the latter receives in justice, the former in charity. He rewards both good actions and good intentions.

Let all, then, enter into the joy of the Lord. Let first and last receive their reward. Let rich and poor sing in unison. Let the abstemious and the careless celebrate today's feast. Whether you have observed the fast or not, rejoice today!

...Christ is risen and death has been cast down! Christ is risen and the angels rejoice! Christ is risen and there are no corpses left in the sepulcher. For Christ in rising from the dead is the first-fruits of those that sleep. To him be glory and power unto ages of ages, AMEN!

excerpts from Words attributed to Saint John Chrysostom

[04/19/20]   Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!
Joy to all in the feast.
