Many emigres from Eastern Europe and even the Middle East and Greece originally found their church home at Holy Ghost. You can read details about the beginnings of our church in its parish history, and more about the Orthodox Christian Church in general in a brief overview written by The Very Rev. John Breck on our Website.
