Who We Are

Holy Trinity is an Episcopal church within the worldwide Anglican Communion. Founded as an ethnically and linguistically Hungarian Episcopal church in the early 1900’s, Holy Trinity now serves a small but vibrant community of singles, couples, students and families from all walks of life. We value our traditions as the ground from which new life springs forth in the light of Christ. As an inclusive community of faith on the west side of South Bend, we are committed to seeking and serving Christ in all persons and to reaching across all boundaries, including those of politics, age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class and ability.

Our Services

What are services like?
We celebrate the catholic traditions of the Episcopal Church, using ancient texts, fabric, candles, incense, chanted liturgy and other materials to support our worship. At the same time, we are committed to exploring the ways in which our liturgical traditions speak to the conditions in our local neighborhood, where poverty, unemployment and violence shape the lives of young and old alike. The combination is constantly evolving.

What is the community like?
As an inclusive community on the west side of South Bend, we are committed to seeking and serving Christ in all persons and to reaching across all boundaries, including those of politics, age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class and ability. We are a community of faith, grounded in the classic creeds and the catholic worship traditions of the Anglican Church. Knit together as the Body of Christ, we center ourselves around the real presence of Christ in our worship, and together we reach out from that center, striving to share our life with God through evangelism, service, study and fellowship.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome those who are still questioning, and we currently include non-Christians in our community.
