Holy Trinity Orthodox Church VA

Come and see the Biblical world come to life...an encounter with Christ Jesus like no other.

Led by our Shepherd, Fr. Paul N. Harrilchak Where we are We hold our services in the Glade Drive Recreation Center. It is located at the intersection of Glade and Soapstone Drives in Reston, Virginia. We occupy the meeting room on the second floor. Come join us. Services Sunday Divine Liturgy is held at 10:00 AM. During the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the service begins at 9:00AM. About Us 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."

Mission: WE SPEAK MANY LANGUAGES. We extend a welcome to everyone. English lets us join voices. We cherish the Orthodox Way, the great spiritual heritage of the Christian East, so divine services here are always engaging. Faithful to tradition. Full of joy. And appropriate to our circumstances. The piety of the Lord Jesus is the piety of the Orthodox. The Lord Jesus sang in church. So do we. And mindful of St. Paul’s talk to Timothy, we attend to the public reading of Holy Scripture with renewed zeal. ❚ The Eucharist—the great Prayer of the people of God—is at the very heart of our parish life as it must be. ❚ The Reston Catechetical School meets Sundays with teaching for the family. In the best traditions of the Church. A catechesis duly profound, clear, and convincing. ❚ Confession—generally—follows a communal, mutually evangelizing rite that respects Synodal guidelines and is scheduled seasonally, yet one may come to Confession before any divine service. ❚ There is ample opportunity to learn and to serve. ❚ Through church programs and locally we try to extend a helping hand to those in need.

[12/24/19]   Our community was so blessed to be able to sit at the feet of Father Laurence(Mancyso), of blessed memory, of New Skete Monastery. Among the many things he taught or shared with our community was the wonderful liturgical prayerbook called, The Sighs of the Spirit (1997 by the monks of New Skete).

As we contemplate the Birth in the Flesh of Our Lord and God and Savior, Jesus Christ, listen to the Prayer for the Hymn of Light (p. 319):

Glory to you in the heights, O God, and on earth, peace to all your people! This evening, as we celebrate the birth in the flesh of your only Son— your eternal, radiant light—be pleased to surround us with his brilliance. Since he is both our brother and friend, as well as the light that liberates us from the power of darkness, in his name we beseech you: Bless the church all over the world, that she may always light the lamps of hope and peace in our hearts and in the hearts of all people everywhere.

For you are holy, O our God, and we give you glory, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: now and forever, and unto ages of ages.

Amen

Our Weekly Thanksgiving:

We give you thanks, O Christ God,
for your earthly gifts.
Do not deprive us of your heavenly kingdom.
But as you came among your disciples, O Savior, giving them Your Peace,
Come now among us and save us!

A most joyful Thanksgiving to one and all!

Anyone interested in having a cyber book club as part of our Nativity Fast? A wonderful short, “unpretentious” book by a beloved hierarch, Archbishop Paul of Finland, of blessed memory, The Faith We Hold was written to “describe Orthodoxy from the inside to the outside.”

We’ve read it several times and find new pearls each time. Comment below and we will figure out the details.

Join us for Evening Prayers (Vespers) today and every Saturday at 5 pm.

Protopresbyter Alexander Schmemann: Forgiveness

This evening we gather at 6pm for Forgiveness Vespers as we ask each other and God to forgive us as we begin our Lenten journey. Tomorrow the Great Fast begins. "Let us begin the fast with joy!"

But as Father Schmemann asks, "Why joy? What is that joy?" Below is an the transcript of a sermon Father Alexander gave so many years ago on Forgiveness Sunday. It remains today an important reminder as we begin the fast with joy.

schmemann.org As once more we are about to enter the Great Lent, I would like to remind us – myself first of all, and all of you my fathers, brothers, and sisters – of the verse that we just sang, one of the stichera, and that verse says: "Let us begin Lent, the Fast, with joy."
