Orthodox Parents Association (OPA)

The Orthodox Parents Association (OPA) is the umbrella organization for the youth groups at Holy Trinity.  It organizes and oversees youth and family activities for the social, cultural and religious development of our youth.

OPA was founded in 1981 by a group of Holy Trinity parents and created its own set of by-laws to operate as a ministry of the church.  OPA is governed by a board of officers whom are elected by the general population of parents from church.

In addition to overseeing the youth groups, OPA also plans family and parent activities and gatherings such as, “Moms Night Out,” “Couples Night Out,” Family picnics, an annual Graduation Luncheon and “Day of Christmas Cheer.”  OPA contributes to and assists in organizing the All Saints Camp, Holy Trinity’s Greek dance program and Vacation Bible School.

Membership Dues:
Currently, OPA is not collecting membership dues from parishioners.  Rather, we hold fundraisers throughout the year of which all proceeds go directly to the youth programs.  Therefore, if you have children at Holy Trinity under the age of 18, you are already a member of OPA.  All children of our church and our fellow parishioners are welcome to attend an OPA youth or family event.
