Holy Trinity Orthodox Church VA

Not the parish you're looking for...the parish you need...especially if you are looking for greater participation and deeper understanding

Led by our Shepherd, Fr. Paul N. Harrilchak

Where we are

We hold our services in the Glade Drive Recreation Center. It is located at the intersection of Glade and Soapstone Drives in Reston, Virginia. We occupy the meeting room on the second floor. Come join us.


Sunday Divine Liturgy is held at 10:00 AM. During the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the service begins at 9:00AM.

About Us

It was Fr. John Meyendorff of happy memory who brought Holy Trinity to life during his sabbatical from St. Vladimir’s Seminary. He crowned the efforts of a small group of faithful (from area Greek and Russian parishes) striving to establish an English-language parish in the Reston-Sterling vicinity. Today we are a small, stable community, striving to bring Orthodox Christians together in English and believers to Orthodoxy. We have no ethnicity to speak of, yet in important ways we are more like a parish in the Orthodox world—in Athens, say, or Damascus, in Bucharest, or Kiev—than the local ethnic parishes are. Our goal is to embody the Orthodox Way in Protéstant America while giving ourselves to the renewal of church life our Bishops have called for.

Our Priest Since 1978, Fr Paul N. Harrilchak has been the priest of the Holy Trinity faithful. He is the beneficiary of an education in the humanities. He studied Holy Scripture, Patristics and Christian Archeology, dogmatic and moral theology, church law and pastoral medicine at the Catholic University of America (Washington DC) and St Vladimir's Theological Seminary (Yonkers, NY, his hometown).

Fr Paul was ordained deacon in 1966 and priest in 1978. He has penned two books for parishioners, one on the Liturgy (1984) and another on Confession (1996). He takes his light from the lamps of renewal: Frs Schmemann and Meyendorff, Fr Mateos, Fr Laurence, etc. He has consulted on matters of Liturgy with the monks of New Skete. The late Archbishop Paul of Finland has incorporated an important suggestion of his into the Finnish Liturgicon of 1985. Prof. John Erickson of St Vladimir's Seminary has written that Fr Paul "is perfectly at home with modern liturgical scholarship...And what is more important, he shows good sense when pursuing the implications of this scholarship for Orthodox worship today."

A thought provoking evening moderated by Dr. Paul Meyendorff, discussing Father John Meyendorff’s role and insight into the OCA’s autocephaly. Join us today for the Divine Liturgy at 10am, followed by Dr. Meyendorff’s thoughts on church renewal. This lecture series is part of our ongoing celebration on the 40th anniversary of our faithful community. Thanks be to God!

Join us!

Please join us this weekend as welcome retired Professor Paul Meyendorff speak to our community Saturday, following Vespers, and Sunday following the Divine Liturgy. Topics include: the significance of the work of Father John Meyendorff in the church and our community, and Church Renewal. See flyer for details.
