Greek Orthodox


It was Greek Festival time again this weekend and I went again with my close friend David.  It's held on the grounds of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral and this time the church was open to visitors so I stepped inside to get some photos.

It really is a beautiful church with quite a lot of stained glass windows in every direction.

The festival was lots of fun with an amazing amount of delicious Greek specialties to eat and drink.

I came home feeling like I'd eaten my way through all the Greek Isles.

I have never been to the Greek Festival. I need to do that sometime. I' have been to the Greek Isles only once. I need to go back. Maybe that's why I haven't been to the Greek Festival. It would cause the desire to return to the Greek Isles to be too intense.

Sounds like a lot of fun. That huge circle in the ceiling lets in a great deal of light. Could you get any photos behind the screen?

Lovely stained-glass windows, too.

Wow! It's beautiful.

I like seeing a modern Greek church. It looks warm and colorful. There seems to be an attractive mural on the second level.

Aw shoot, Sharon. Judy and I were there but missed seeing you. We went to the 1 p.m. tour of the Cathedral.

So different from our churches, even the modern ones.
