My name is Fr. Timothy Sawchak and I am the pastor of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Overland Park, Kansas. Our parish was awarded a grant by the Lilly Foundation to allow me a time of Sabbatical from May 21, 2016 to September 20, 2016.

During my time away from the parish, I will be providing a page on this website about one of the Saints of the day. Included in these posts will be an icon of the saint, a link to the Life of the Saint, selected liturgical hymns for the saint, an audio recording of the Troparion and Kontakion to the Saint, and, if possible, a map of where the saint lived.

It is my prayer that by providing this for myself and my flock, that we will truly "get to know the Saints." Their stories should help us as we journey through the struggles of life. 

I would like to especially thank Adam Lockridge, the director of the St. Raphael School, for taping all of the audio files for the Saint of the Day!
