Holy Trinity Orthodox Church
140 Horseheads Blvd.
Elmira Heights, NY 14903

At the turn of the century, immigrants from the Austro-Hungarian and Russian Empires settled in and around Elmira, NY. They worked in local foundries, textile mills, iron works and the US Steel Bridge works. Initially they worshipped with other Slavic people at the Ukrainian Church on 14th street which was served by clergy sent from Binghamton, NY. Over time, the community grew and Holy Trinity was founded as a separate parish in 1916. Due to the great sacrifice of the parishioners, the church building and rectory were completed in a very short time.

The original building served its community until the 1980’s when a new church was constructed at the present Horseheads Boulevard location.

Services are in English.

A Fellowship Hour follows the Divine Liturgy on Sundays.

Guests are more than welcome to attend the Divine Services and all parish activities.
