Welcome to Holy Trinity

Welcome to our website! Holy Trinity Church, is located in Overland Park, KS and is part of the Orthodox Church in America and in the Diocese of the Midwest. As our members have remarked about their own experience, we think you, too, will discover our church to be warm and inviting, and an excellent place to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ and His Holy Church. Visitors unfamiliar with the Orthodox style of worship will benefit from reading Frequently Asked Questions. If you visit, be sure to browse our bookstore which has an extensive selection of books and icons. If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to call the church (913) 681-6948 or send us an email.


The Holy Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council (October 12)

Today the Church remembers the 350 holy Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council under the holy Patriarch Tarasius (February 25). The Synod of 787, the second to meet at Nicea, refuted the Iconoclast heresy during the reign of Empress Irene and her son Constantine Porphyrogenitos. The Council decreed that the veneration of icons was not idolatry (Exodus 20:4-5), because the honor shown to them is not directed to the wood or paint, but passes to the prototype (the person depicted). It also upheld the possibility of depicting Christ, Who became man and took flesh at His Incarnation. The Father, on the other hand, cannot be represented in His eternal nature, because “no man has seen God at any time” (John 1:18).
