Readers Needed!  

On Easter Sunday, during the Agape service which is held at 11:00am, the Gospel  is read in different languages, symbolizing that the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ  is proclaimed to all the nations. We are looking for volunteers who would like to read the Gospel in a language other than Greek or English during this service .  If you are interested, please contact the Church office, or Father Andreas directly: fatherandreas@holytrinitybridgeport.org
