|Theophany - 01/20/19|
The feast of the Theophany of the Lord is in many ways a twin of the feast of the Nativity. Originally it was all one feast, the Theophany, with the emphasis put on the appearance of the Lord to the world for His ministry. Only later did the feast split into two as it were, in order to combat the pagan feast of the winter solstice.
|Nativity - 01/06/19|
With great spiritual joy, the brotherhood, seminarians, and all those who share in the life of the Holy Trinity Monastery and Holy Trinity Seminary, have welcomed once again the great feast of the Lord’s Nativity. Having completed the 40-day fast, and having participated in the mystery of Confession, we joyfully greet the Christ Child, praising Him with song and prayer.

|Entry of the Theotokos - 12/05/18|
The great feast of the Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos Into the Temple was celebrated at the monastery with the usual solemnity that characterizes our divine services. We were graced with what has become almost traditional, the presence of His Grace Bishop Nicholas of Manhattan for the All-Night Vigil. Vladyka is usually invited to serve in our parish in Syracuse, and so he breaks up his journey there from New York by staying in the monastery for the evening.
