I never realized there was such a strong Greek Orthodox presence in Greenville. Despite the fact that this will take away from taxable properties in the downtown, I think churches add a lot to a downtown. They speak to the faith of the community beyond the businesses and stores.

Actually, St. George already completely covers that same block, so it won't be removing any land from the current taxable base. I am glad to see so much being done on that block. It has been in need of improvement for a long time, IMO. :)

If you go to the link Skyliner provided and navigate down to pictures gallery on the left hand side, there is a pretty extensive collection of photos of the church itself and downtown Greenville. Discover something new everyday.

Actually most people who attend this church are Egyptian-Americans.

I know I've been by that place several times before. Isn't it out on 417 between Mauldin and Simpsonville?

The Copts are from Egypt and have been around since the early days of Christianity. Coptic Chrisitainity is believed to have been started by the Apostle Mark.
