An Eastern Orthodox church with an autonomous bishop, Orthodox Autocephalous Church of Albania is not just a place of worship but a support system for the community. The church is responsible for a number of charity programs, including 17 day-care centers, a few theological schools, three elementary schools, and an orphanage. They also run professional training schools that offer classes in management and information technology. They are known for their humanitarian work with refugees and people in need, and their dedication to peace. The building is a modern complex, designed to be bright and uplifting. Enter through the large, brass doors that lead inside, and look up to see the domed ceiling decorated with reliefs and murals. Consider attending one of the regularly held services, where rituals like the dueling choirs provide a window into Albanian culture.
