About Our Parish

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Lewiston Maine was founded in 1910. As a small church on Lincoln Street in downtown Lewiston, it was established to serve more than 3000 Greeks in the community who were drawn to the area by jobs in the Bates and surrounding mills.  As the mills began to close in the 1950’s, the Greek residents migrated south to the Massachusetts mills, and the population of Holy Trinity reduced significantly.  With only 135 families in 1967, one priest, Fr. Soterios Alexopoulos, transformed the parish and revitalized it during this difficult transition.  The community built a new church in 1977 at 155 Hogan Road fulfilling the growing needs of the community.  Despite the drop in population, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church is known as a pillar of civic leadership in Lewiston and Auburn, Maine.
