Condition of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in New Orleans

One of the oldest Orthodox Churchs in the United States is located in New Orleans, Louisiana. The parish of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral traces its beginnings to around 1864. Early reports indicate that the Cathedral is completely surrounded by water and that the adjoining Hellenic Center building has sustained serious roof damage. The "before and after" photos can be seen here.
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese has set up a section on their website for news and updates regarding the effects of Hurricane Katrina on its parishes. Updates on the condition of Holy Trinity Cathedral can be found there along with updates on the conditions of other parishes in the Gulf Coast area.
The website for the Cathedral also features a section of photos of the interior of the Cathedral prior to the damage.
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese is now accepting donations for their Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.
