In 1955, the vision of Dr. Anthony Vasilas and Pete Vasilas gave rise to the creation of a vibrant Greek American community in Flushing, New York. With resounding enthusiasm, over 450 Greek individuals rallied together within ten weeks to lay the foundation for a church that would become a haven for faith and culture. The church, aptly named Three Hierarchs, officially opened its doors on September 18, 1955, under the guidance of Fr. Constantine Volaitis, marking the birth of a dynamic community.
