The year 1956 witnessed the birth of the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church of Bay Ridge, an endeavor inspired by a group of visionary Greek immigrants. Their shared conviction stemmed from a recognition of the profound need for a Greek Orthodox Church in the heart of Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge. Amidst a flourishing community of Greek Orthodox Christians, the establishment of the church was more than a spiritual sanctuary; it was envisioned as a conduit for the transfer of their cherished Greek heritage to the next generation.
