On May 28, 2001, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on the biannual West County Greek Festival. "'These events are really important for us because they celebrate Greek culture and really bring our people together,' said the Rev. Joseph Strzelecki. 'Greece is predominately Orthodox, and the church is the center of the social life. To Greeks, culture and faith are one.' Reflecting that union, the festival included traditional food, dance and music, as well as lectures in the church's 40-pew sanctuary."
