Holy Trinity Orthodox Church is a small but active parish of Orthodox Christians. Although the church is a member of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Diocese of the U.S.A., its parishioners are of a widely varied ethnic and racial mix, linked by common purpose and belief. Holy Trinity was established in Danbury, in 1910.

Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western CT, Inc. offers real hope for those facing advanced illness through patient-focused care, education, resources and advocacy. We help patients and families discover what end-of-life care can be–what can be gained, what can be realized and what can be recaptured. The Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children & Families offers support groups, workshops, and educational events to help children, teens and adults cope after the loss of a loved one.
