St. Sophia’s Church is part of the Meropion where people from different areas of Athens gather to pray and worship God. Christian rituals such as weddings, christenings and memorial services take place at the church.

The temple was dedicated to St. Sophia because during excavations a statue of the Goddess Athena was found, who in ancient times was considered to be the Goddess of “Sophia”, in Greek meaning wisdom.

The blessing of St. Sophia and her three daughters Faith, Hope and Love protect the elderly ladies of the Meropion, as well as all who are involved in this community.
