With the love of Christ, the Greek Orthodox of Union County, New Jersey resulted in the establishment of the Holy Trinity Church organizational committee in 1963. The following year, three and one-half acres were purchased on Gallows Hill Road in Westfield to house the spiritual center for the area Greek Orthodox faithful. A parish center, with administrative offices, classrooms and a gymnasium/auditorium were built and the first religious services were conducted in October of 1966. For the following nine years this center would house all of the parish activities. In 1972, ground was broken for the new church.

Through the spiritual leadership of Father Alexander G. Leondis the new church edifice was blessed by Archbishop Iakovos of America and the doors were officially opened on April 12, 1975. On November 2, 1980 Metropolitan Silas of New Jersey officiated at the Consecration of the Church after all the iconography, ecclesiastical furniture and decoration were completed.

We have celebrated many anniversaries and during the last several years. The Parish Center underwent additional construction and updates for the offices, auditorium, kitchen and more classroom space for our youth. In 2015 the Holy Trinity parish is comprised of about 600 families and stewards.
