Mission, Values, Vision


Our Mission

“To live our faith, grow the Church, and serve the world as Orthodox Christians.”

The mission of Holy Trinity is “To live our faith, grow the Church, and serve the world as Orthodox Christians.” We are guided by the moral principles proclaimed in Scripture and two millennia of Christian Tradition, the Great Commission of our Lord to “Make disciples of all nations” and the knowledge that all humanity will ultimately be judged by the way we have provided for the “least of our brethren.”

Our Values

Holy Trinity avoids micro-managing projects and stifling initiative by stating clearly both our mission and our values. These values form the sign post that keeps our parish on track as we grow together. Our governing values are:

Involvement: Holy Trinity should encourage her faithful to work actively in support of parish ministries.

Caring: Holy Trinity should work actively to create a culture of mutual support through the use of small groups, visitations, and other relational ministries.

Trust: The parish leadership should act deliberately to foster the same level of trust from the faithful that characterized Holy Trinity’s culture during the years of Father Anthony’s pastorate.

Faith (Morality & Piety): The faithful of Holy Trinity place great importance on sound moral behavior and proper ecclesial demeanor.

Shared Leadership: Authority for decision making and policy setting should not rest solely with the clergy.

Orthodox Tradition: The time-honored practices of the Church as guided and shaped by the Holy Spirit should inform every aspect of Holy Trinity parish life.

Shared Responsibility: Accountability for the outcome of decisions and policies should not rest solely with the clergy.
