Tom Hanks, by now an honorary Greek thanks to his decades-long marriage with wife Rita Wilson, decided to celebrate Greek Easter at St. Sophia’s Church in Los Angeles.

St. Sophia’s, located in the Byzantine-Latino quarter in LA, is the biggest Greek Orthodox Church in the city. Greeks from all over Southern California gather here for midnight mass the night before Easter.

Hanks has been a frequent visitor to Holy Week services at St. Sophia’s in the past. This week, he and Rita Wilson took some great photos while carrying traditional Greek lampades (λαμπἀδες) and posing with fellow parishioners.

Other notable Greek names in attendance included Nia Vardalos and Alexis Georgoulis.

Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti! Happy Easter to all Orthodox Christians.
