This past Sunday Holy Trinity Church in Springfield celebrated their 110th Anniversary with a visit by their ruling hierarch, Archbishop Nikon, bishop of Boston and New England.
During the early 1890’s Christians from Russia began settling in Springfield. In 1905 the first Liturgy was served and began the 110 years of service to the area.
One of its original endeavors was as an orphanage. Yesterday’s banquet included a presentation by a former parishioner, Donnie Carmichael who is now involved with Project Mexico which also includes an orphanage. The Bishop in his remarks commended the parish for their sustaining efforts and making the church open to all that come seeking.
