Welcome to our Parish

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Portland, Maine, is a parish rich in history and strong in faith. In recent decades we have come to reflect and share in the growing diversity of our city. We welcome all Orthodox people regardless of nationality and language, and our doors are open to people who are searching for a deeper spirituality and liturgical experience

The Liturgy is indeed the heart and soul of the Orthodox experience. And it is complemented by a rich tradition of iconography and spirituality. And now, in the 21st century, the Web has also become an essential form of expression for our faith. Our church has had a website since 1999, but we are now looking to develop it more fully and improve its appearance.

We invite you to visit often. But even more, we invite you to visit our parish. Perhaps you will find a spiritual home with us.

Learning to be Human

For most us, every year Lent comes around as an inconvenience to our normal routines. Imagine having to worry about what foods to eat and feeling guilty every time someone talks about fasting! Imagine having to attend extra church services - which we don't, of course, but we are reminded every time we look at a church calendar or open the church bulletin or newsletter! Come on, what century are we living in? This is the 21st century, we don't have time to fast and go to church! Isn't three times a year enough?

This year, allow Lent to help you re-evaluate your priorities and values.
