"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." Romans 15:7

The St. Athanasius the Great Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington, Massachusetts strives to be a living witness of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Our mission as a Parish is to "Practice Hospitality" (Romans 12:13), as St. Paul so exhorts...... Thus, it is our rich blessing to strive and bring the Light of Christ to all of God's people, through Orthodox Christian tradition, education, and philanthropy. We seek to serve the spiritual needs of our faithful parishioners through the sacramental life of the Church. By means of outreach and faith in God, we continue our growth as a living Church by inviting others into the Orthodox faith through Baptism and/or Chrismation, and educating them through the establishment of our Christian ministries, programs, schools & philanthropic activities.

WOW!!! There are no words for the tremendous success of our 2017 Greek Festival!
We exceeded all previous years with record breaking numbers in every category! 

It was a phenomenal weekend, with great weather and an event filled with positive energy! Our chefs, grill masters, gyro kings & queens, and loukoumades specialists worked nonstop, cooking enough food for a village; supply runners and table & tray cleaners of all ages navigated the tent like an obstacle course; new faces learned the secret to frying the perfect loukoumades and how to make the perfect frappe – ‘metreo, me yala’; our pastry ladies served up homemade delicacies nonstop; and a new generation of slush scoopers and sand art experts helped in our childrens’ area. Our Agora also expanded to include even more interesting items this year and a diverse group of bands, djs and dancers gave the volunteers energy and kept our guests dancing day and night! Thousands of smiles, laughs and good times had by all!

This important community event would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication, love and support of our parishioners and thousands of our closest family and friends! Your love for our Parish is immeasurable! 

Thank You - Ευχαριστουμε !!!!
