All day they came, sometimes a steady trickle, sometimes a sturdy stream, that led back to what was for many now the old country, Greektown. They were coming to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on Ponca Street, just south of Eastern Avenue, around the corner from where Ikaros restaurant has served the tastes of their homeland for generations. Inside the chapel, amid the heavy bouquet of incense, the body of the Rev. George Kalpaxis lay in an open coffin before an elaborate facade of icons and imagery of the Greek Orthodox Church, which he served for more than 60 of his 89 years.

Covered in paint and spackle, George Karalekas and Bill Roros worked feverishly to put the final touches on the new home for their church, a modest clapboard structure on a country road in northern Harford County. The men had floors to carpet, walls to paint and dozens of paintings to hang before the 40-year-old white building on Dublin Road truly would become the county's first Greek Orthodox church. "We have no choice - we have to finish," said Karalekas, a Bel Air resident. "The bishop is coming."
