Santa Cruz, CA
This is the front door of "The Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church" on 223 Church St. in Santa Cruz. It is often said that if you find one Greek in a town, you will find a restaurant; if you find two Greeks, you will also find a church. Well this church began very modestly in 1980 by borrowing space at Poor Clares, a Catholic church in Soquel. The Greek families' determination to found a church became a reality in 1982, when a building, that used to be a funeral home, was purchased and converted into Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church. Besides church services it hosts every year a Greek Festival with baklava sales and homemade treats created by the local Greek community. The Greek Festival '05 will be held this coming weekend (September 9-11)!!
