Holy Trinity Cathedral Parish Celebrates 125 Years!

June 10-11, 2017

By the Grace of God, Holy Trinity Cathedral will celebrate the 125th anniversary of her founding in 1892!  This is a momentous occasion, worthy of giving thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for the blessings He has bestowed on us, as well as strengthening us for the challenges we face in the 21st Century!

Please mark your calendars for the parish celebration which will take place the weekend of Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, 2017. His Grace, Bishop PAUL will celebrate the Divine Liturgy with our faithful and guests. There will be a special banquet later that afternoon at the Carlisle, Lombard, IL.  Ticket prices are $100 adults / $25 children*. 

We are happy to be able to share discounted hotel rates offered by Robey Hotel Chicago and The Crowne Plaza Chicago West Loop below.  We are also seeking donations of items to be showcased in our event raffle.

Let us gather together in morning and evening prayer, rejoicing in the Eucharist, thus feeding and strengthening our souls!

Let us work together, offering our time, talent, and resources to grow the Church and the Faith!

Let us offer prayerful thanksgiving to our Lord, asking His Grace and Blessing in all we do!

There will be much information coming in the next few weeks.  Please be sure to mark your calendars, sharing this information with your family and friends so we can make this a truly memorable event.  If you would like to get involved, please see the event chair, Margo Pelak.
