There are many opportunities to aid in God's work.  Please consider joining us in our efforts.

International Orthodox Christian Charities

IOCC, in the spirit of Christ’s love, offers emergency relief and development programs to those in need worldwide, without discrimination, and strengthens the capacity of the Orthodox Church to so respond.  From time to time, Holy Trinity Cathedral conducts fundraisers to help support this Christian organization's good work.  In the past year, Trinity O Club and our church school children assembled health kits to be sent by the IOCC to those in need.

IOCC has an outstanding record of stewardship. When you give to IOCC, you can give confidently knowing that IOCC is committed to maintaining low administrative costs so that more funds can go directly to helping people in need. Approximately 91% of IOCC’s resources are spent on humanitarian relief and development programs with only 9% for fundraising and administrative costs.

Food Collection for the Hungry

At Holy Trinity, we are painfully aware of the need of the hungry in this city.  Our food donations will now be distributed by the kind folks at Northwestern Settlement, located at Augusta and Noble.

Since 1891, Northwestern Settlement has served Chicago’s West Town community by offering wrap around services that holistically meet the complex needs of our neighbors numbering more than 40,000 annually through programs which focus on education, social services, and the arts, as well as, feeding the hungry.

Donation boxes are located in the parish hall and the need for non-perishable food donations is year round.  Join us in sharing this gift of food with our brothers and sisters in Christ.


Let Our Mouths Be Filled With Thy Praise, O Lord!

The long anticipated CD of Holy Trinity’s Cathedral Choir, under the direction of Deacon Gregory Ealy, is now available for purchase.  "Let Our Mouths Be Filled With Thy Praise, O Lord!", is truly a labor of love as well as being some beautiful liturgical music. 

The selections presented are not only taken from the rich and ancient chants of the Church, but also include recent compositions.  CDs are available for $15 each. 

Please visit the parish bookstore to purchase CDs.

Listen to a sample track from the CD!



Parish Cookbook Sponsored by Saints Martha & Mary Sisterhood
After several generations of research and development -- not to mention many months of dedicated taste-testing -- the Sts. Martha and Mary Sisterhood is pleased to announce their cookbook, Illumined by the Feast, is available for your consumption.  The book even includes a chapter on recipes for "Feasts and Fasts."

You can also fill out one of the order forms (available at the vestibule literature rack or via link below) and mail it to the Cathedral, with your check payable to: Saints Martha and Mary Sisterhood.  If you wish to have the cookbook mailed to you, please include $5.00 per book for postage and handling.
