Faith Enrichment: Holy Week through Pascha, Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 7:30 p.m. -- Via Go to Meeting App/Telephone Conference Christ is in our midst! He was, is and always shall be! I pray this email finds each of you and your families and friends safe, well, and healthy. These have certainly been unprecedented times for all of us. Mary will start the teleconference at about 7:20 p.m. to give everyone time to join. Don't worry if you are late calling in. It will not interrupt the meeting but do be sure to mute your telephone or computers so everyone will not hear any background noise. This Wednesday, April 8 2020 at 7:30 p.m. we will conclude the journey that has taken us all the way to the holiest week of weeks and the day of days, Great and Holy Pascha. Please watch the televised, streaming services either on Facebook live or at Holytrinitydallas.org. Be sure to check the Church's website for upcoming services. In normal times, there are several services nearly every day of Holy Week. This class picks up where our last class left off, and we will discuss Holy Wednesday through Pascha, the drama leading up to and including the great events leading to the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Hopefully, you each have a copy of Papadeas' Holy Week & Easter Book to help you follow the services.

Faith Enrichment will meet Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 7:30 pm VIA TELECONFERENCE through Go-To-Meeting. All you need to participate is a telephone, computer, or smart phone. This class focuses on Lazarus Saturday, Palm Sunday, and the Bridegroom Services of Holy Week. These preliminary days prepare our minds and hearts to receive the great lessons at the end of Holy Week. Just as Lent is divided into days of personal preparation followed by days focusing on Christ and His sacrifice, so Holy Week itself is divided into these parts.

Holy Trinity Choir wishes Joanna Spahis and John Bookas a very Blessed Feast Day..... ✝️
Thank you for the very nice Service today.🙏💝
Dear friends at Holy Trinity, I will be presenting a performance tomorrow at 4pm at United Methodist Garland of music inspired by Greek Orthodox chant. I'm the head chanter at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Lincoln NE and also a concert pianist. I will be performing Philip Glass's Annunciation Piano Quintet based on our communion hymn for the Annunciation. I will also perform Victoria Bond's Simeron Kremate which is based on our beautiful crucifixion hymn from holy week. I will be chanting the hymns and then performing the piano works based on those hymns. Hope to see you there!
This Wednesday, October 30, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. in the Boardroom, we will have Faith Enrichment Class. Beginning this week we shift our emphasis from the history of the church to the worship of the church. The weekend worship actually consists of three services, Vespers on Saturday night, Orthros early Sunday morning, followed immediately by the Divine Liturgy. We will spend several weeks looking at the Divine Liturgy, but we spend this week looking at the two services that precede liturgy, that is, Vespers and Orthros (Matins). Join us Wednesday night to look at the meaning and significance of these two worship services.
I hope all of you came out okay though the storms Sunday night. I talked to one Church member who said he saw a tornado literally jump over their block, so I know it was a pretty unsettling time for many of us. Now I hope we will be able to resume our study. This Wednesday, 10/23/2019 at 7:00 p.m., we will look at the great teachers of the church during the first millennium who are known as the "Church Fathers." We begin with the men who sat at the feet of the Apostles and take a chronological journey, discussing the insight that these holy men give us through those challenging years. These men teach us the truth of the Apostolic Faith which the Church possessed from the beginning while applying it to the controversies of their time. Join us Wednesday evening for a look at the Church Fathers. In Christ, DeaconClint Sharpley
Thank you for the very nice Service today🙏💝

Hello all! My grandmother is looking for a way to get to church on Sunday’s from McKinney! It’s too far of a drive for her as she doesn’t drive on highways anymore, but would love to carpool with someone! Let me know if anyone is willing to help out, or if you think you may know someone who is! Thank you.
Dear Fellow HTGO members - I lost a flash drive in the copier room in the church office. It is black and when you slide it open, there is a red strip. It has lots of church history information and other work information for me. If you see it or have it or put it somewhere, please PM me. Thanks.
I've recently gotten into cooking greek food alot. I need some help on where the greek community here gets their groceries from. I want to find some good quality feta, wine, olive oil and anything else you can think of. Thanks!

The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Dallas, was founded in 1915 by immigrants from Orthodox countries, predominantly Greece. Our first church home was in South Dallas at Riggs and Sanger. In the early 1950’s, the parish relocated to Swiss and Apple, where it remained until 1992. The beautiful Byzantine Church of Holy Trinity is presently located at Hillcrest and Alpha in North Dallas.

Mission: The mission of the Church is to proclaim the Gospel of Christ, to teach and spread the Orthodox Christian Faith, to energize, cultivate, and guide the life of the Church in the United States of America according to the Orthodox Christian Faith and Tradition. The Greek Orthodox Church in America sanctifies the faithful through divine worship, especially the Holy Eucharist and other Sacraments, building the spiritual and ethical life of the faithful in accordance with the Holy Scriptures, Sacred Tradition, the doctrines and canons of the Ecumenical and local Councils, the canons of the Holy Apostles and the Fathers of the Church and of all other Councils recognized by the Orthodox Church.

Blessed are You, O Christ our God, who made fisherman all-wise, by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit, and through them, drawing all the world into Your net. O Loving One, glory be to You. -Apolytikion of Holy Pentecost

The Feast commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles on the day of Pentecost, a feast of the Jewish tradition. It also celebrates the establishment of the Church through the preaching of the Apostles and the baptism of the thousands who on that day believed in the Gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ. The Feast is also seen as the culmination of the revelation of the Holy Trinity. https://www.goarch.org/pentecost

A Special Message to our Parish- May/June, 2020

Prayer for Peace
Almighty God and Creator, You are the father of all people on the earth.

Protect us from the evils of injustice, prejudice, exploitation, conflict and war.
Help us to put away mistrust, bitterness and hatred.
Teach us to seize the storing and using of implements of war.
Lead us to find justice, peace and freedom.
Unite us in the making and sharing of tools of peace against ignorance, poverty, disease and oppression.
Grant that we may grow in harmony and friendship as brothers and sisters created in your image, to your honor as praise.
Amen

Directions for Re-opening Services
Beloved Parishioner:

Christ is Risen!

By the grace of God, we have successfully re-opened for Divine Liturgy services.

Resuming public services is one that is met with an array of feelings. Many have been bursting at the seams to come back since our last open Sunday, March 15. Some are at-risk and still need to stay home against their wishes. Some are undecided as to what to do. Whatever the situation, we have all been processing through so many things. The Lord blesses and understands all, who, in earnest, seek to do His holy will.

Let us open our hearts and ask for the Living Water of the Holy Spirit, which "heals all that is infirm and completes all that is lacking." Let the Lord's uniting power transcend all barriers and differences.

Based on the local civil guidelines, the contact we have had with the Metropolis, the written guidelines that have been shared with parishioners by the Metropolis, and with the great help of the task force, I share these items to note:


Anyone at risk, not feeling well, or unable for any reason to attend services, please remain at home, and do not hesitate to request a private pastoral visit at church or home to receive Holy Communion or other blessings. The Church prays for those who are absent for good cause. CDC Guidelines regarding who is at risk are linked here.

Due to capacity limits we will have a Sign Up system to allow parishioners to reserve their spot at the services. Please use the Sign Up Button(s) at the Bottom of this page.

Immediate families or people arriving in the same car or living in the same household may sit together.

Individuals attending a service at church, should maintain distances of at least 6 feet from one another in and around the church, wash hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer. Please be prepared to receive traffic direction from signs and from the parish council l upon your return.

We will continue the webcast including the lighting of candles by the Parish Council.
We highly encourage that offerings be done electronically or via a check as opposed to cash. There will now be credit card terminals in the church for your offering. Out of abundance of caution and respect for the safety of our parishioner family, for those who prefer cash, the Parish Council will no longer be providing change.

Holy Communion will be received by the clergy and laity as usual. The directives still include that the clergy and those assisting wear masks while distributing communion because of their remaining close to parishioners.


We continue to miss altar boys, but only the adult supervisors will be able to serve.

We continue to miss the choir. As we wait for further notice, we will continue having one chanter at Orthros and Divine Liturgy.

Face masks are welcome.

A memorial service may be a simple Trisagion without kollyva, since we are still not handing out anything.

Because the Church needs to be cleaned and sanitized after all the services, and we have to preserve the cleaning resources for the eucharistic services, Vespers and Paraklesis continue as online only. The names submitted for the reposed and the living will still be kept and commemorated.

All Non-liturgical church meetings and fellowships are still cancelled until further notice.

Once again, many thanks to the staff, task force, and parish council for their many hours of preparation!

Many thanks to you for your patience, understanding, and prayer! We all understand that Church feels harder with many directions, which, on top of everything, can even change. It will be helpful to us to remember that, in the Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom, we express trust and thankfulness to God by saying "We thank you for this Liturgy, which you are pleased to accept from our hands, even though you are surrounded by thousands of Archangels and tens of thousands of Angels". Let us ask forgiveness of one another and of the Lord, reconcile, and set our humble gifts before the Lord to be transformed. It is our great God Who sends down the All-Holy Spirit, by which we all become the body of Christ.

May the Lord accompany us in all our steps. Many years, health, faith, and love to all.

Love in Christ,
Fr.Peter

Gates of Ionian Village Closed, but Program and Content is Wide Open

Fr. Gary Kyriacou- Director, Ionian Village

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of the traditional beloved Ionian Village Summer 2020 program, the Administration team is still hard at work. The Office of Ionian Village has already begun, and will continue, to provide ministry virtually. From Vespers to devotional sessions, many opportunities exist for the youth of our Archdiocese, parish youth ministers, and parents to connect with our amazing life transforming ministry.

The summer kicked off with an historic meeting of several former Directors of Ionian Village. Fr. Gary Kyriacou, the current Director of Ionian Village, met with Fr. Costas Sitaras, Mr. Michael Pappas, and Fr. Evagoras Constantinides on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. The former Directors shared insights, traditions, and the influence that Ionian Village provided to thousands over the years. The Directors will continue to meet on a somewhat regular basis to discuss Alumni engagement and opportunities to help make Ionian Village affordable and accessible to as many youth of our Archdiocese as possible.

The Office of Ionian Village is developing a variety of Alumni engagement opportunities such as reunions, retreats, and trips that will be scheduled and announced as soon as it is safe to gather. In addition, IV virtual content is being introduced to rekindle the flame of faith experienced at both IV and Metropolis Summer Camp programs. Upon returning home, campers and participants can easily fall away from the good habits developed during summer programs. IV is working to build a ministry that all programs can use to connect with their camp participants year round.

Coming soon from the Office of Ionian Village is a series of recorded and live conversations with Marissa Garoufalis, a school social worker located in Chicago, who was the Director of Support and Outreach at IV last year. The summer of 2019 marked the first time a mental health professional was officially part of the Ionian Village team. Schools around the country are pouring resources into mental health and wellness programs. A real need has arisen in the last decade for children and young adults to have access to professionals in this field. Ionian Village has been at the forefront of this trend, working with Marissa to develop and refine her role and how it can be implemented at camps across our Archdiocese. Last summer she led portions of Staff orientation and spent significant time training them on how to handle situations involving their campers and themselves. In the upcoming videos, Marissa will introduce her experience, her role at IV, and answer questions and comments about mental health and its applications in life and at camp. Look for Marissa’s webinar in early June.

Every evening at Ionian Village begins with Vespers. The Office of Ionian Village hosts this service online weekly and will continue through the summer. Every Thursday evening at 8:30PM ET, former campers, staff, directors, medical staff, clergy and their family members gather on Zoom to pray. The Office of Ionian Village has creatively outlined the best way to gather a large group to chant and read assigned parts by members participating from all over the country.

While many of our Greek-American teenagers may not walk through the gates of Ionian Village this summer, IV is still working to provide an opportunity to deepen the faith and appreciation for our shared faith and Greek culture online this summer. The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down many business and programs, but nothing will keep the Office of Ionian Village from making the love of Christ and His Church relevant for the youth of our Archdiocese.

Today, Constantine with his mother Helen present the Cross, the most precious wood. It shames unbelievers. It is a weapon of faithful kings against their adversaries. A great sign has come forth for us which is awesome in battle. -Kontakion of Constantine and Helen

This great and renowned sovereign of the Christians was the son of Constantius Chlorus and of the blessed Helen. Under him and because of him all the persecutions against the Church ceased. Christianity triumphed and idolatry was overthrown. As for his holy mother Helen, after her son had made the Faith of Christ triumphant throughout the Roman Empire, she undertook a journey to Jerusalem and found the Holy Cross on which our Lord was crucified.

Paraklesis service May,20 2020

Help us thank Demetrios for his love and dedication to our youth and our Holy Trinity community and send off the Bucks with Texas-style love. Decorate your car, make a sign, and honk your horn in a drive-by parade this Wednesday. Please remember that the parish is not open to the public, and as such, the following guidelines must be observed:

You must stay in your car at all times while on the Holy Trinity property!

Please enter the parking lot on the East side. The parade "route" will go from the South side of the hall, past the courtyard where the Bucks will be located, and exit out the North entrance.

Parish Council members will be there to direct traffic. Please follow their directions to keep the parade moving forward so that everyone can have a chance to give their best wishes to the Bucks.

Please plan to arrive within the designated time frame. Though it will not be open to the public, Paraklesis will begin at 6 PM, and we will not continue the parade beyond the one-hour time frame.
