A Taste of Greece 

It is a true labor of love our Parishioners give their time and energy to make the festival a memorable experience for you.  The Greeks have a term called "philoxenia," which literally means "love for strangers" and this particular notion is what drives us every year to prepare traditional food to feed our guests.  Here is what we offer you this year.

 

Dinners

&nbsp
Souvlaki - Cuts of pork tenderloin threaded on a skewer, grilled on an open fire.
