Greek Orthodox church celebrates festival in new ways

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN-- As a way to keep traditions alive, the Twelve Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church is hosting a take out event in replacement of the Taste of Greece event.

The church made changes to the festival due to COVID-19.

The takeout event took place on Saturday, and will happen again on Saturday October 3rd from noon to 5 p.m.

Guests can call ahead and place an order or come to the tent at the back of the church to place an order in person.

Officials of the event said it's important to keep traditions going especially during the pandemic.

Father Timothy Sas, Priest of Holy Apostles Church said, "We've really had to trim down the menu and learn how to figure out how to serve a lot of people just curbside."

Funds raised will support the church and its charitable outreach.

The Twelve Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church was founded by Greek immigrants in 1918.

Today, its congregation is made up of people from more than 24 different ethnic backgrounds.
