- Welcome -
Welcome to the Holy Trinity-Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral website. We hope it will serve as a virtual door into our warm, welcoming, and diverse community of Orthodox Christians.

Although our historical roots lie in the Greek-speaking world of the New Testament, in the communities which received the letters to the Thessalonians, Corinthians, Philippians, etc., you do not have to be of Greek origin to worship with us. Some of our members have Greek origins from immigration as far back as the 1880s, but many do not—including both full-time priests and our deacon.

On behalf of our community, I welcome you to “Come and see!” Please feel free to contact us by phone or email, we look forward to meeting you.

+ Fr. Gregory
