A Little About Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral
Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral was established in 1937 by Greek immigrants. Our current location was opened in 1970 and consecrated as a Cathedral in 1980. Our Parish is part of the Metropolis of Pittsburgh, under the jurisdiction of Metropolitan Savas, that runs the umbrella of the Greek Archdiocese of America which is a Province of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
The Patriarchate of Constantinople was established as a Church in 37AD by St. Andrew, the Apostle of Christ. Thus, we may say that this Holy Trinity Cathedral is connected to the Apostles of Christ and thus with the original Church established by Christ which started in 33AD by Christ Himself proclaiming that even ‘the gates of Hades shall not prevail over it”(Matt.16:18). Quite impressive!
With this, you may say that we observe the history of the Church, and we wish to belong to this sacred Body, the historical Church of Christ. You are right! We have a history of 2000 years and receive the disciplines, practices, and messages throughout the past of the Church. Our Sources of our Christian Faith are the Holy Scripture and Holy Tradition.
St. Athanasios the Great (298-373)--Patriarch of Alexandria (Egypt) (326-373)--explained that it is the Orthodox Church alone that adheres to that which “Christ taught, the Apostles preached, and the Church Fathers kept.” Today, there are more than 350 million Orthodox Christians worldwide.
