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.

Be Born With Christ!

The passage is quoted from the Oration on the Theophany by St. Gregory of Nazianzus (also known as St. Gregory the Theologian), which he preached on December 25th in the year 380 in the Basilica of the Holy Apostles in Constantinople. It is an example of something that we rarely encounter today: a homily that is theology in poetic form. Indeed, the opening few lines of this homily have been turned into a hymn that is sung at the Matins of Christmas. A careful reading of this homily will enlighten the mind with the meaning of Christmas, especially what the coming of Christ means to us humans: that "we might live in Christ, being born with Christ and crucified with him and buried with him and raised with him."
