Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church December 13, 2010 by DickH Posted in Lowell 3 Comments Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church on Lewis Street; photos by Tony Sampas 3 Responses to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Tony Sampas says: December 13, 2010 at 9:02 am Having been asked about the symbolism depicted in my photographs I will attempt an answer. This cross is etched into the paving stones of the newly erected monument to Greece on the Grounds of The Holy Trinity Church in the North Common Village. The Chi-Rho is one of the oldest Christian symbols as the X and P are the first two letters of the Greek word for Christ. For the symbolism of a sea gull sitting atop a gold cross I can only guess. It probably has to do with the fact that Greeks are a seafaring people. Dean says: December 13, 2010 at 10:59 am Another symbolism the cross in the Greek flag means it is a Christian nation.
