"The Lord Jesus personally
gives us the commandment
to love one another, so that,
by consoling one another
with mutual love, we may
lighten the sorrowful and
narrow way of our journey
to the heavenly country."

— St Seraphim of Sarov

. .Do You Have A Prayer Request?

Caring for one another begins with prayer (James 5:16), and benefits not only those for whom we are praying, but it also can have a positive effect on our own spiritual well-being. As Orthodox Christians we know that God hears and answers prayers.

God commands us to love one another, and in joy we pray for those in our community, along with family, friends, and those known and unknown.

The St. Seraphim Prayer Ministry of Holy Trinity Church invites you to join the men and women of our parish to intercede for the needs of our church family, our parish, our community here on Long Island, and the Church at large. 

This is an opportunity to grow in your life of prayer and minister to the needs of our community. In the future we plan to hold seminars on prayer, intercession and meditation that will help us grow in our prayer life and our relationship with Christ.

Come, and pray with us!

Akathistos to the Mother of God: Joy of All Who Sorrow

During times when members of the Holy Trinity parish family are critically ill, the prayer ministry group will celebrate a prayer vigil, typically an Akathistos Hymn to the Mother of God.

The prayer vigil consists of members committing to chosing a time of day: morning, afternoon, or night to pray the Akathist to the Theotokos, Joy of All Who Sorrow. The service is therefore offered continuously throughout the day.
