Face coverings should be worn by those who feel they are not fully protected and in keeping with CDC guidelines those unvaccinated. We are reserving the far right side of the church for those who feel more comfortable with face coverings. Abundant air flow remains the norm. Please note the Air Conditioning in the Nave/Sanctuary is functioning as at substandard level and will not be active, to save stress on the system at this time.

The Greek Food Festival held on July 30-31 was again a resounding success!
All of you, and your families and friends, have stepped up to support our beloved Church and each other, as a loving Parish family.
Our largest and most significant fundraiser of the year successfully pivoted from a fully pre-order/curbside pick-up model (‘Greek to Go’) to one which combines pre-orders with a significant ‘walk-up’ component – including gyro, souvlaki and on Sat., actual on-the-spot customer order fulfilment.
The camaraderie during the many food prep workshops, combined with a strong promotional effort, and finally concluding with a seamless fulfilment operation on July 30-31, was truly that of a tight-knit Parish family operating like a ‘well-oiled machine’.not
The greater Newburyport community continues to love our food, inviting atmosphere and the effort our Parishioners put into the Festival. We received countless compliments over the weekend, in-person, on-line and via e-mail, many saying our Festival is THE highlight of their Yankee Homecoming week!
While we sold almost all the food we prepared, we have a few trays of moussaka and dolmathes which have been thawed and are refrigerated – and should be baked soon and not re-frozen. If any Parishioner or friend is interested in purchasing a tray, please contact Jim Sperelakis (email@example.com or 978-479-6372) or Melinda Patrick (firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-543-0824). We also have bags containing a dozen koulourakia, individually packed kourembiethes, and a few additional pastries we can sell. They are all delicious!
Your hard work and strong support is what has made our ‘Greek to Go’ and Festival events a major success. “Efharisto Poli” and please accept our sincere appreciation, gratitude and kudos!
