Rev. Timothy A. Hasenecz, Rector

The Reverend Father Timothy A. Hasenecz was born on April 15, 1959, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He grew up in Bethlehem having graduated from Freedom High School, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He received his undergraduate/Master of Divinity Degrees from St. Tikhon Orthodox Theological Seminary in South Canaan, Pennsylvania, where he graduated Magna cum laude in 1997.

Upon graduation from St. Tikhon’s, Father Tim (as he is known at Holy Trinity) began working for the Phoebe Ministries offering comfort and support to its residents and families. He also served church services. In 1998, he became a Staff Chaplain at Lehigh Valley Health Network, Allentown, Pennsylvania, and served in this position for one year. In 1999, he provided similar services to Covenant Health Care offering comfort and support to patients, their families and the medical units.

In 2001, Father Tim was ordained a Priest and was assigned as Pastor of Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church, McAdoo, Pennsylvania, where he served until 2003. In 2003, he left Holy Trinity to accept a position as Hospice Chaplain at Lehigh Valley Health Network where he continues to work full time. As Hospice Chaplain at Lehigh Valley Health Network, Father Tim provides spiritual support to patients and families, bereavement support to families, community education, hospice patient funerals, memorial services, and much more. He was promoted in 2007 to Pastoral Care Coordinator. He is instrumental in coordination of the “No One Dies Alone” program overseeing a large number of volunteers serving 24 hours a day. Father Tim received his Board Certification through the Association of Professional Chaplains in 2011.

In 2005, Father Tim accepted a part-time Pastoral position with Holy Trinity Orthodox Catholic Church, Catasauqua, Pennsylvania, where he served until 2009. In 2011, he returned to Holy Trinity Orthodox Catholic Church to again serve the Parish in a part-time capacity and he remains there today.
