In light of the recent decisions by the Turkish Prime Minister and the Turkish government to convert the Great Church of the Hagia Sophia from a museum to a mosque, this presentation will offer reflections on the Hagia Sophia from past to present times. From its construction by Justinian in the sixth century, to the height of Byzantine imperial ceremonies in the 10th and 11th centuries, to its conversion by the Latin crusaders to a Roman Catholic cathedral in 1204

My dear fellow parishioners, Over the past few weeks we have had to redefine “normal”. We have moved to live streaming our services and video Bible Study as well as meeting remotely via computer, etc. The burden each of us carries through this difficult time is sad but also strengthens us as a community. Many of us have been financially impacted during this quarantine.
Attached is a copy of His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas’ directive from 3/16/20. In light of these measures we will have services available online only. We are asking parishioners to stay home. We will have a few people there in order to help conduct the service. The service schedule will remain the same but we ask that you watch the service at https://www.holytrinitytoledo.com/live/
