Welcome to Holy Trinity!
In 1905, Serbian immigrants to the Pittsburgh area united to form a Serbian Orthodox community. Originally, two churches served the community, both in Pittsburgh's South Side area. St. George Serbian Orthodox Church was located on S. 16th Street and St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church was on Sidney Street.
In 1962, the two churches were unified into one, and the Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church-School congegration was formed. The full unification took place when Holy Trinity Cathedral, located in Whitehall, was consecrated in 1971.
Within the last several years, the congegration has grown as it welcomed new Serbian immigrants as well as members of St. Mary Serbian Orthodox Church of Clairton and St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church of Knoxville when those churches closed.
Holy Trinity Cathedral is part of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Eastern America, under the leadership of His Grace the Right Reverend Irinej (Dobrijevic), and the Patriarchate of the Serbian Orthodox Church, located in Belgrade, Serbia.
We welcome you to visit us!

Luminaria for Pascha
The Sunday School is coordinating Luminarias for Pascha. Similar to what you may see in your neighborhood on Christmas Eve, white bags with lit candles are placed around the exterior of the Cathedral for the Saturday evening procession. There is a special feeling generated from the glow of the white candles against the midnight darkness. The special bags can be made as a memorial or in honor of your loved ones. We ask for up to five names for each luminaria. Please email your order to Mike Winowich at email@example.com or complete the form at the Tutor’s desk. We will accept any donation as there is no set fee. Thank you for your support of our Sunday School Program!

Saturday Evening Vespers at 6:00 p.m.
Every Saturday evening, we will hold Vespers at 6:00 p.m. This beautiful service, which is approximately 30 minutes long, takes us through creation, sin, and salvation in Christ. It leads us to the meditation of God’s word and the glorification of his love for humankind. It instructs us and allows us to praise God for the event or saint(s) whose memory is celebrated and made present to us in the Church. It prepares us for the sleep of the night and the dawn of the new day to come. And on Saturday evening, or on the evening before a Divine Liturgy, Vespers begins our movement into the most perfect communion with God in the sacramental mysteries to come at Liturgy. Click here to be directed to the calendar for all scheduled services.
