Overview

This was not always a Greek church. In 1910, this gorgeous Greek Revival building rose above Ashland Avenue as the Anshe Shalom synagogue. At the time, the neighborhood was very much Jewish, but that had changed by 1927. The building was purchased by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox community, and so it remains today. The interior of the church is beautifully decorated, with the top dome featuring a magnificent painting. Sunday services are usually crowded, as many of the Greek Orthodox faithful come to worship here. Call for service times.
