Singing Angels

 

Booh had the opportunity to attend a variety of services at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church with her Thea (Greek for Aunt). Over the past year she’s attended the baptism for her cousin’s goddaughter and a couple of Sunday services.

The inside of this church is dazzling. Iconic imagery is painted all over the church walls and ceiling, along with vibrant stained glass windows and white tapered candle sticks.
