About Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church

Holy Trinity is a parish that has been on a journey for more than a century in central Indiana. Founded by Greek immigrants who had journeyed themselves to this country, the parish’s first temple was on West Street. By 1961, the Holy Trinity parish had outgrown those facilities and moved to 40th and Pennsylvania Streets. Now, Holy Trinity hosts the GreekFest at the church’s 20-acre campus at 106th and Shelborne in Carmel, Indiana. Visit to learn about the beautiful new Byzantine temple and iconography.
