Welcome to St. Demetrios

We are an active Greek Orthodox Christian Parish located in Saco, Maine. Our membership consists of native Greek, Romanian, Russian, and English speaking families and youth. The parish has a long standing Greek membership with a growing number of English speaking Protestant and Catholic converts. Our Parish Priest is Father Basil Arabatzis who has been a priest for over 30 years.

We invite you to "come and see," as Philip said to Nathaniel (John 1:46), to experience the beauty, glory, and holy splendor of this same Orthodox Church in the twenty-first century.
