Philippines Connection supports churches and ministries in the Philippines that are under the Ecumencial Patriarch.  It is committed to sharing the love of Christ and the fullness of the Orthodox Christian faith with people all throughout the Philippines and also Filipinos worldwide. 

Since 2009, members of  Holy Trinity Church have partnered with individuals and communities both in our local area and also all over the world to help poor communities in the Philippines. Over the years, we have organized several donation drives to collect clothing, textbooks and educational materials, children’s toys, religious items, and monetary donations; we have used these donations to prepare and ship “Balikbayan” (Tagalog for “homecoming”) boxes to poor Filipino communities. 


In addition to these regular Balikbayan box shipments, we have coordinated aid in the form of donation drives and shipments for recovery for victims of typhoons, terrorism, and other disasters.

Moldovan Summer Camp

The youth camp that Father Aris served in the Republic of Moldova in 2015 needs an infusion of cash to conduct a program in 2017.

Moldova is the poorest country in Europe and the Church struggles to offer more than the basic ministries. As in the United States, summer camp is one of most effective ways of helping young people form their Christian identity developing the next generation of church leaders. Persons who are able to help can make a donation to Holy Trinity (check, credit card, or cash) earmarking the gift “Moldova Summer Camp.” The fundraising goal is $3500.
