THE PHILIPPINES CONNECTION

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. 

Father Panharios Borreos

Father Panharios serves the mission of Lake Sebu in the southern Philippines, as well as two smaller missions including a tribal people, the T’boli. He funds his parish through the generosity of local donors and his family by working a secular job Monday-Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Father dreams of devoting all of his time to serving and expanding the Church.

A recent gift from Holy Trinity will help the Lake Sebu mission convert a warehouse into a permanent place of worship.

To support Father Panharios, please contact Father Aris.

 

DISASTER RELIEF

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.
