End of Summer Fest at East Meadow's Holy Trinity Orthodox Church


The Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in East Meadow said goodbye to summer on Sept. 2, with its End of Summer Fest, which included various forms of entertainment for families and members of the church.

The church, located at 369 Green Ave., East Meadow, is a vibrant community of Orthodox Christians, committed to a variety of outreach projects and ministries, which help homebound members, improve the neighborhood, and provide financial support for regional, national and international service projects. Holy Trinity is under the spiritual leadership of the Rev. Martin Kraus, its rector.

Holy Trinity was founded in 1924, and was the first Orthodox Christian parish established in the Long Island region. It was made up of Easter European immigrants. Following the period after World War II, the parish grew drastically in size, allowing it blossom over the next several decades into what it is today.

The church offers opportunity for its parishioners to get involved and learn about their faith. There’s educational opportunities for people of all ages.

The festival earlier this month featured a variety of ethnic and barbecue foods, live music through the day, a basket raffle, prayer services during the day, a flea market and church tours. There was something for everyone, and admission to the event was free.
