The Women of Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church
The Women of Holy Trinity is a women's auxiliary whose primary purpose is to contribute to the well-being of the Serbian community centering around this Church. WOHT is affiliated with the Circle of Serbian sisters of the Western Diocese.
Through their many activities, the women keep alive many colorful traditions of the Serbian people in the Bay Area. By hosting large banquets, lunches, a food festival,a fashion show, and other special events, the women generate funds for the maintenance of the Church and its cultural center. In addition, the organization successfully functions as a guardian of the Orthodox Christian faith and the cultural heritage of the Serbian people in the United States.
IconostasNot long after the Church was acquired, the interior was remodeled to make it a more attractive facility in which to celebrate the Holy Liturgy, and part of that project was the design and building of the Iconostas. It has special meaning here because the wooden structure was designed and laid out by Mr. Nikola Vujnovic, one of the Churchís founding members and most devoted parishioners. And the icons that completed the project were painted by a very talented young artist, Stevan Shapona. Learn more by visiting the Iconostas gallery.
FrescoesHoly Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church has been helped by a number of donors. The church's rich iconostas and frescoes are examples of their generosity.
The most recent contribution has been painting of the sanctuary behind the altar. Those frescoes as well as all the others were painted by a Serbian iconographer, Blagica Zdravkovic from the Zicha Iconography School in Serbia.

LuncheonsWeekly fellowship luncheons are offered following Divine Liturgy on Sundays from September through May. Parish families take turns in preparing the meals. A modest donation is asked to benefit the general fund of the parish. This is a popular event where parishioners and their guests socialize.
