To the Faithful Stewards of the St. John Parish


Dear Parishioners and Friends:

Our Annual Greek Food Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 15th and 16th on the church grounds beginning at 12 noon on both days.

Once again, we will open the doors to our historic Community and welcome hundreds of visitors into our beautiful home, offering them our loving hospitality that we are well-known for. In addition to showing our guests the beautiful interior of our church, we will of course offer to them our delicious homemade Greek food, which has been a trademark of St. John’s South End parish for decades. Among the delicacies is of course our authentic Greek Gyro and a variety of pastries including our famous Loukoumades. On Saturday evening we will raise the level of
KEFI with live Greek music by ENOSIS!

Spread the word and bring family and friends to this two-day celebration of Greek food and music!

In order for this year’s Greek Food Festival to be the largest and most successful one ever, we need YOUR help and support! We need YOU and YOUR FAMILY!!

Volunteers are needed! This event is not only an important fundraiser for our Parish, but it is also a friend-raiser—a community-building opportunity. PLEASE encourage your children and grandchildren to come and assist their Church by volunteering a few hours of loving service and by bringing their families and friends to enjoy all that we have to offer. Volunteers can sign-up by contacting Zachary Pantekidis at 617-913-1141 or the church office at 617-536-5692.

The success of the Picnic is up to us! Please consider donating whatever you can to help defray the expenses of the Picnic. We look forward with excitement to the year ahead with expanded ministries and a renewed sense of participation. We need your help to do it!

Thank you for your continued support, assistance, and especially for your love and service to our St. John’s parish family!


With love in the Lord,



Peter Sougarides, Zachary Pantekidis, Reverend Theodore J. Barbas
President, Parish Council, Picnic Chairman, Chancellor
