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.

The Kingdom is a Festival

In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says, "I tell you, many will come from east and west and sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven." The most common image that Jesus uses to describe the kingdom of heaven is a party, a huge dinner where everyone is invited. That's how I see our annual Festival, a huge party where everyone is invited, to enjoy our food and pastries, the music and dancing, and the fun atmosphere.

Our Festival is an image of the kingdom. From east and west they come to us - and we will come to sit at table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Can you imagine it?
