Place of Worship: Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral

Before Holy Trinity Cathedral was built on East Boulevard in 1954, members of the local Greek community didn’t have a designated place to worship; they’d rent space in city buildings and host itinerant priests to give sermons. Now, Holy Trinity’s presence is unmistakable, dominated by its domes, deep blue like the Mediterranean Sea. Since 1978, its popular Yiasou Greek Festival has celebrated Greek culture with four days of authentic cuisine, music, and wine. But it’s about more than that: “It’s an opportunity to share our faith,” says Father Jonathan Mettasophia, “… and allow people to come and see the beautiful sacred space we have here.” —E.W.
