Welcome to the St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church Website
CHRISTOS ANESTI! CHRIST IS RISEN!
Welcome to Saint Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church. Since 1931, Saint Spyridon has been the center of Orthodoxy in Upper Manhattan. Today, Saint Spyridon serves the Greek-American families of Washington Heights and beyond. The sanctuary contains some of the finest Byzantine iconography and architecture in the world and is a fitting tribute to God's glory. The liturgical experience of our parishioners and visitors is enhanced not only by the tremendous beauty of our church, but also because of the true family feel of the community.
Thousands of families all across the tri-state area, as well as many thousands more across the country can trace their family roots through the doors of Saint Spyridon. As the Greek community in New York grew and expanded, families moved out of the area, but still call Saint Spyridon their true spiritual house of worship. Whether it be for a memorial service or to celebrate the holy feast days of the church, people from all over still call Saint Spyridon their home.
We hope you'll visit us at Saint Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church and become a regular family member as well.
