Holy Trinity’s Mission Statement: To worship and glorify God, by promoting the teachings, of the Greek Orthodox Faith. To encourage all members' participation through our Greek culture, educational programs, community outreach and fundraising activities while serving God, our community and humanity
Per the directives from the Archdiocese and Metropolis all services in the parish are being done with only the priest and selected staff to help with the service. Doors will be locked and no one will be allowed in. Please watch services at www.holytrinitytoledo.com/live. No one will be allowed into the church complex unless given permission by the parish priest. That includes all church organizations and outside organizations. Furthermore, all aspects of the complex are included in this prohibition (the church proper, social halls, Church School areas, cultural centers, etc.). Please note that the parish priest will still perform necessary pastoral functions. However, he may be limited in visiting nursing homes, senior facilities, and even hospitals.
In order to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have entered into a time in which we all must take extraordinary measures to do our part. We will notify you promptly as we adjust to this developing situation.

Daughters of Penelope and Philoptochos will be partnering to collect non-perishable food items for a new church pantry. These food items will be made available to our neighbors that are in need. For the next two weeks, we will focus on collecting jars of peanut butter and boxes of crackers in a well-marked container in the entryway hall of the Building. We would love for our entire church community to participate in donating these food items. Thank you!
