Church of the Week: Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, Finneytown, OH

From 1983-1987, the lovely Robin and I had the blessing of ministering as corps officers at The Salvation Army's Cincinnati Temple (now Center Hill) Corps in Finneytown, a suburb of Cincinnati. During that time I had several opportunities to enjoy the beautiful Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on Winton Road in Finneytown.

This church represents the oldest Greek Orthodox parish on record in Ohio. The original Holy Trinity congregation was organized in 1907, and a second Greek church in Cincinnati, St. Nicholas, formed in 1938. In 1945 the two churches combined and took on the name, Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. On December 16, 1972, the church moved out of its location close to Cincinnati's inner city and relocated to a ten-acre lot in Finneytown.

The beautiful interior of the church is lit by striking stained glass windows and adorned by numerous icons.
