Brooklyn Religion Briefs for June 5
Festivals Spotlight Cuisines Of Mediterranean Lands
All this week, Schermerhorn St. in Brooklyn becomes a center of Greek culture. Saints Constantine & Helen Cathedral, which just celebrated its centennial two weeks ago, invites everyone to “Eat Well, Dance and Be Greek.”
This Greek Festival, which opened at noon on Monday despite rain, features culinary and musical delights, including traditional dancing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Festival-goers can listen to continuous Greek music, participate in tours of the sanctuary and visit the “Village Market” of art and jewelry in the church basement, or even admire the beautiful mural behind the pastry counter.
