Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present in the Most Holy and Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You, never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
Novena Prayer for the end of the Coronavirus Pandemic
O Mary, full of grace, patroness of this nation and Mother of the Church, in this time of illness and world-wide need we seek your intercession for the human family before your Son’s throne of grace and mercy. We ask for strength in adversity, health in weakness and comfort in sorrow. Help us, O Blessed Mother, to be filled with confidence and trust in the tender compassion of our God. Let us not be afraid, like our own Saint Marianne Cope, who entrusted her life and ministry among the outcasts of society into the care of our Divine Physician. Continue to watch over all who are sick as well as those who care for them and give wisdom to all who are seeking a cure. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

A Message from Father Opondo-Owora

Welcome to The Church of the Holy Trinity. We invite you to join us and meet our devoted parishioners, countless volunteers and dedicated staff – all will make you feel delightfully comfortable.

At Holy Trinity, we are a people who take pride in the thoughtfulness of our predecessors who founded our strong community of faith. They put in place facilities dedicated to the great glory of God. These have been maintained over the years and passed on as symbols of our rich heritage. We have a beautiful and magnificent church that speaks well of our devotions, communal and private prayer.

The participation of all in living out the mission of the Church is critical. Through this participation we are made aware of the Lord's presence and we experience His love and care in a very profound way. This participation also helps us to recognize and continue the legacy of our forefathers of maintaining and passing on the heritage of our faith to future generations. It is our deepest desire and prayer that you join us and be part of this noble cause. We hope that your time with us will be an opportunity to share our unwavering faith and the vibrant joy we have in Christ Jesus.

Rev. Charles Opondo-Owora is the 14th Pastor of St. James and the 2nd Moderator of the Pastoral Team of Holy Trinity and SS. Cyril & Methodius, since July 1, 2017.

The Church of the Holy Trinity is a community with rich history, active participation from its community and a spirit service. We welcome you to join us in our variety of Education, Service, Social and Worship opportunities. We are a small community who has made the commitment to one another to be a church family. We know each other by name and hope to know yours soon. We hope that you may find solace and peace at home with us at the Church of the Holy Trinity!
