The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston and the Parish Council and members have announced the arrival of a new parish priest (Proistamenos) to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Lewiston. Rev. Father Jon C. Emanuelson will begin his pastoral leadership of the church on March 1.

Father Jon has been a parish priest in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America for 29 years. For the past six years, he served at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Wilmington, North Carolina, and prior to that in Ogden, Utah and Charlottesville, Virginia.

Founded more than a century ago in 1910, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church has a long-standing history in Lewiston-Auburn. It is a welcoming Parish whose mission is to grow in the faith through worship, service, witness, and fellowship. The worship of God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – the Holy Trinity, is fundamental to the life and the spirit of the Orthodox Church. The church has a growing convert population and all are invited to worship every Sunday, followed by a fellowship coffee hour.
