St. Symeon Orthodox Christian Church is located at the convergence of the Highland Park, Forest Park, and Avondale neighborhoods in Birmingham, where we “moved in” to our new church building in January 2015. If you live in the area, you are probably familiar with the church’s iconic Russian style onion dome and the large mosaic icon overlooking Clairmont Avenue. When the church was brand new, the interior walls were bare and white. They are not bare anymore! Our talented iconographers, the Romanian husband-and-wife team of Alin and Smaranda Trifa, have now made three trips to Birmingham, each time filling a new part of the church with vivid iconographic murals in the ancient Christian tradition. There is much to see, and we are looking forward to showing you!
The St. Symeon Food and Culture Fair is our way of welcoming our neighbors to come tour the new church building, learn about the iconographic murals being painted inside, hear our internationally acclaimed choir, and shop at our one-day-only multi-ethnic food bazaar and bakery. Come see us on April 28, 2018, from 10-4.
