Holy Trinity’s Gyro Sale to Begin On Election Day In Steubenville
STEUBENVILLE — Although Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Steubenville had to cancel its traditional Greek Festival that would have been held in June, a taste of Greece is still something area residents can savor on a monthly basis, starting in November.
Beginning Election Day, Nov. 3, the church’s Philoptochos Society will hold a gyro sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. while offering some additional festival items with pre-orders being accepted now through an Oct. 27 deadline by calling (740) 282-9835, going to holytrinitygreekfest.com or faxing to (740) 282-2091.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our famous gyros once again this fall,” commented Parish Council President and Festival Co-Chair Anthony Mougianis. “In addition, we will be offering some additional Greek delicacies and pastries each and every month.”
The food will be available on the first Tuesday of the month and will include the sale of gyros as is the normal practice of the church’s Philoptochos Society. They are $7 each and include one tzatziki with each additional one being 25 cents.
Other menu items are:
Loukaniko: Grecian style sausage in a special tomato sauce, family style, six pieces, $12;
Dolmathes: Lemon-scented grape leaves stuffed with a seasoned mixture of rice, meat and herbs, 10 pieces, $10;
Baklava: Layers of buttered fillo, walnuts and cinnamon baked to a golden brown drizzled with honey syrup, four pieces, $10;
Kourambiethes: Delicate buttered cookies rolled in powdered sugar, four pieces, $6.
There will be free delivery on orders of four of more gyros or four or more of any food combinations.
When placing orders, patrons should allow 20 minutes before pick-up.
The church is located at 300 S. Fourth St., and patrons picking up orders are advised to enter by the bar door by the alley.
“It has been a challenging year for the world with the pandemic, and this gives us an opportunity to give our community a taste of our festival that unfortunately had to be canceled this year,” Mougianis noted.
“Online ordering will be offered, and we highly encourage to pre-order online so you are assured of getting an order. This first sale will be on Election Day Nov. 3, so we anticipate much activity for this event,” he added. “This will be a carry-out only event with no inside dining. All COVID-19 protocols will be in place. Masks and hand protection will be worn by all of our volunteers.
“Our Philoptochos President Angie Mahfood and 2021 Festival Co-Chair Angela Mastros and their great team of volunteers have planned and organized for this event, and we look greatly forward to serving our community a taste of Greece that they have missed this year,” he said.
Sale proceeds support the ministries of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.
