Presented by the St. John the Theologian Greek Orthodox Church
The beginnings of the Greek Orthodox community in Webster, TX began in 1993 with a small but growing Greek community.
We began the Greek Festival as a way to share our culture and heritage with our neighbors. At the Festival our neighbors can sample our food, our culture and visit our church see the awe inspiring Byzantine iconography. Here we are in 2013, working on our 20th Greek Festival. This three day festival takes the combined efforts of everyone in the church. The Ladies, young and old, will cook for weeks on end to get the pastries done just right. The men will build the infrastructures for the festival and also cook. Everybody works even the children!
The Greeks at one time had conquered the known world and excelled in philosophy, arts and medicine. They were also one of the first to accept Christ. The bible was written in Greek and the liturgy or service that was developed 2000 years ago is still practiced at St. John the Theologian Greek Orthodox Church every Sunday in Webster. As you can guess we are proud of our church and our heritage and we welcome you!
