Drawn to Father Alexander Schmemann's vision, Holy Trinity works for that "rebirth of the liturgical life of the Church," he called for
in Liturgy and Life, "its better understanding by the faithful, a more responsible attitude to it, a more active participation in it."

Our Parish

Fr. Paul Harrichak

Our Priest Since 1978, Fr Paul N. Harrilchak has been the priest of the Holy Trinity faithful. He is the beneficiary of an education in the humanities. He studied Holy Scripture, Patristics and Christian Archeology, dogmatic and moral theology, church law and pastoral medicine at the Catholic University of America (Washington DC) and St Vladimir's Theological Seminary (Yonkers, NY, his hometown).

Fr Paul was ordained deacon in 1966 and priest in 1978. He has penned two books for parishioners, one on the Liturgy (1984) and another on Confession (1996). He takes his light from the lamps of renewal: Frs Schmemann and Meyendorff, Fr Mateos, Fr Laurence, etc. He has consulted on matters of Liturgy with the monks of New Skete. The late Archbishop Paul of Finland has incorporated an important suggestion of his into the Finnish Liturgicon of 1985. Prof. John Erickson of St Vladimir's Seminary has written that Fr Paul "is perfectly at home with modern liturgical scholarship...And what is more important, he shows good sense when pursuing the implications of this scholarship for Orthodox worship today."
