CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — For more than half a century, the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church (502 S. Chaparral St.) has treated the residents of Corpus Christi to a their annual Greek Festival. But did you know that for the past 28 years, the church has also held a Christmas Bake Sale?

Well, they have. And it's happening again this weekend.

Organized by the St. Nicholas Ladies Philoptochos ("friend of the poor") Society, this annual event gives some of the best cooks and bakers in the city a chance to make pastries, breads and others sweet treats fresh in their church kitchen.

In addition to Greek Christmas breads -- including Round Loaves with a coin placed inside for good luck -- pastries will be offered like Baklava, Kourambiedes and Koulouria. Also available: Cocktsail-size Tiropites (Cheese Puffs) and Spanakopites (Spinach Puffs) which are sold frozen.

To place an order early or to ask about other items that may be available, call (361) 815-1460 or email: philoptochos@stnicholasgoc.net.

The Christmas Bake Sale will take place Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
