Established by Russian and Ukrainian-speaking immigrants in 1915, the first Holy Trinity Church stood at the corner of Goddard and Meade Streets.  The original wood frame building survives on the site.  After World War II, the parish’s growth created the need for a new and much larger church. In 1949, the parish purchased its current site.  On July 31, 1955, ground was broken for the new church and rectory.  The church features an exceptionally handsome blend of traditional Byzantine and classic Russian architectural elements.  Construction was completed in April 1959, with the first service celebrated in the new church on Pascha, May 3, 1959.
