“Greek Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Obviously the Church is beautiful and a landmark. It is also a beautiful Divine Liturgy (normally at 9:30am). We decided to stay for the 'coffee hour'. It is in the fellowship hall/gym - the curved wood ceiling is more interesting than any gymnasium I've seen. Good coffee though they ran our a bit early. We felt very welcome - Emanuel was especially fun to talk with.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We had the pleasure of touring the building when it was open for a festival a few years ago, and could not believe how beautiful this building is. If you get the chance to see it, don't pass it up. A marvel of modern design.

“Gorgeous church with interesting past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Once in awhile this church will be open to the public, or you can always attend their services. It's more interesting when they hold the Greek festival and have a guide tell you about how it was built. Of course it's Frank Lloyd Wright so it was built way over budget and after he was dead, but nothing was skimped on. I loved that the roof is actually floating on top of the building. Lovely windows and light.

“Frank Lloyd masterpiece.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I liked to study the icons. The guide was very interesting. He told about the church services and the meanings of the icons and other religious sympols throught the church.
