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.

How do we fast? Do we fast according to the unrealistic rules that monks imposed on the entire Church? Or do we 'fast' in that minimalistic, modern way, where we make our own rules? Or is fasting only about food? If we paid more attention to the Not-so-Old Testament we might learn the true meaning of fasting. Read more...
