Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, Macon, GA

      

The first Greek Orthodox faithful arrived in Macon and Central Georgia in the late 1890’s.  Some of the names of the early immigrant families were Lamis, Floros, Nicholas, Roniotis, Andros, Zolotas, Zaloumes, Pappas, Callianos, Arthur, George, Peters, and Malliotis.  They came together to establish the Greek community and relied on the Greek Orthodox priest from Atlanta to visit and hold religious services in various halls and in the homes of the faithful.  From 1933 to 1955, the Greek community was under the guidance of Father Panos Constantinides of Atlanta.

Unlike most other cities of our size, Macon was unable to establish a Greek church, but after World War II we were loosely organized as a “community,” known as the Greek Orthodox Community of Macon, Warner Robins, and Milledgeville.  Founded in 1959, the Greek ladies social, club, Sophia, Agape and Elpis, was very instrumental in maintaining our community by holding bake sales, fund-raisers, and dinners.

The Greek Orthodox Church of Macon was legally formed in 1964 when the State of Georgia granted a charter to the four incorporators: George Zaloumes, John Cacavias, Harry Andros, and Nick Dermatas.  They established a Church Building Fund in anticipation of buying land and building a church.  George Andros and Johnny Vastakis joined the four founders as Great Benefactors.

As a “satellite” congregation of Atlanta, services were held in various places, but the congregation relied primarily on the chapel at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.  The Episcopal community of Macon was very generous and supportive of our efforts and determination.  Father Homer Goumenis of the Atlanta Cathedral served as our priest in the 1960’s and 1970’s, conducting many baptisms, weddings, and funerals, in addition to celebrating the Divine Liturgy on many Saturdays and Holy Days.
