Founded in 1892 as St. Vladimir's Russian Orthodox Church, Holy Trinity was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and designated an official City of Chicago Landmark in 1979.

Designed to resemble the Russian provincial churches known to its first parishioners, this church and its rectory are symbolic of the Russian Orthodox community in Chicago.

A sign in Russian greets visitors. Though the center of religious life for many Russian Orthodox faithful, Holy Trinity does not confine its services to those of Slavic descent.

Father John leads the weekly 4:30 pm Saturday vigil before incensing the Holy Trinity cathedral.
