St. Luke Greek Orthodox Church’s annual Greek pastry sale fundraiser has launched, offering authentic Green cookies and treats in time for the busy holiday season. Pastry options include baklava, kourabiedes, finikia, paximadia, koulourakia and toffee, plus gift boxes with and assortment of pastries.

Presented by Ladies of Philoptochos (Friends of the Poor) Society, the Greek pastry sale runs through Nov. 11 and raises money for local outreach ministries. All pastries are baked locally and can stay fresh for months when stored properly in air-tight containers or refrigerated.

"Greek pastries are not only tasty treats for the home, but also popular gifts to give for the holidays,” said Charlotte Lechlak, organizer of the annual sale. “We sold out of last year’s pastries, so we encourage everyone to order early.”

Orders must be placed by Nov. 11 online at GreekPastries.org or by downloading the order form and submitting via mail. Prepaid orders will receive priority and must be picked up on Nov. 17 or 18 at St. Luke Greek Orthodox Church, 134 Talbert Pointe Dr., Mooresville. Orders will not be shipped.
