Our parish was founded in 1944 by Albanians from the southeastern part of the country, near the city of Korca. The current church building was built in the early 1960s and the beautiful interior is filled with wonderful icons, including the miraculous Icon of the Blessed Virgin, whose story is found here.  Read the full history of our parish here.
