Rev. Fr. Innocent Neal, Rector

 

Fr. Innocent Neal, Matuska Melanie, Ephraim (8), Andrew (5) and Sebastian (2) were formally assigned to Holy Trinity on October 1st, 2018 by His Eminence Archbishop Mark. Fr. Innocent and his family are familiar faces in NEPA as they were previously at St. Tikhon’s Monastery where Fr. Innocent was the Bookstore and Press Manager. During that time he was also the rector of Sts. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Union Dale, PA. Fr. Innocent is a 2005 graduate of St. Tikhon’s Seminary where he received his Masters of Divinity. After graduation he moved to Atlanta GA to serve as a Reader, Catechist and Assistant Administrator at his home parish, St. John the Wonderworker. During that time he met his wife Melanie, and had their first son Ephraim before returning to St. Tikhon’s in 2014. The Neal family is excited to be in Wilkes-Barre and a part of the Holy Trinity Community. “We immediately felt at home here at Holy Trinity and are excited about the future of our community.”, said Fr. Innocent. “We look forward to getting to know and spend time with everyone in the parish!”

THE OCA
 
The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

DOEPA

Holy Trinity Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Mark (Maymon), Archbishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Wilkes-Barre and the local area.

DAILY SCRIPTURE READINGS

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

FEASTS & LIVES OF SAINTS

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
