I have decided to visit a Greek Orthodox Church Saint Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox church I went alone because I figured that this would not draw too much attention during the service I tried to find a near by church that will give the service partially in English When I found one near me it was my luck that I went at the time when it was all spoken in Greek The English service was at six in the evening and the all-Greek service started at ten in the morning So to my discouragement I was at a lost at any attempts that I had preplanned to adapt to this new environment I didnt even get the name of the priest While I was there sitting in the back I was able to dissect some of the norms of the church and the culture with inThe church external appearance was quit different than other churches that I have seen It was basically a big white stucco block with a gold dome on top and four decorated spikes on each corner of the building that surrounded the dome The people of course were all Greek and were very well dressed Most of the men and boys all wore suits and If not they had some kind of vest on I dont know if this was some kind of rule or tradition but it mostly seemed as a respect to God The women all wore the basic dresses and all the skirts fell down below the knee Everybody was proper and ordered As I walked in the church I entered a lobby of some kind What I saw hear was something like social hour Everybody was in there They were all speaking Greek and I felt as if I was in a family reunion party The children were all together the adults talked together and the young adults all were together The way they all socialize
