We welcome you to join us over the Labor Day Weekend (August 31, September 1-3) on our beautiful Church grounds for our annual Odyssey Greek Festival.  For thirty-eight years, the members of our Parish have had the distinct pleasure of inviting you into our spiritual home and sharing the sights, sounds, and taste of our Hellenic traditions. We hope that you will notice the gathering together of our community to bring forth the fruits of our labor, as generations of our church family come to work hand in hand for the good of all. We take great care in the preparations of each meal and pastry dish, using only the finest ingredients to ensure that each item on our menu is prepared to simple perfection. Feel free to attend one of the presentations in our Church proper, participate in our cooking demonstrations, or simply walk around and enjoy the panoramic views of our beautiful grounds. Enjoy the pantheon of culinary delights, dance to the rhythmic beats of our Greek music, and allow yourself to 'travel' to Greece and experience its beauty here in Orange, Connecticut.  Once again, we pray that you enjoy your time here with us.  Kali Orexi!  (Healthy Appetite!)
