Last Wednesday Community Connect Northern Suburbs met for the first time in 2018 at the Loida Scripture Home for the Elderly in Kifissia. Deacon Chris Saccali, the founder of Community Connect, and Mr Alexis Karelis, the President of Loida, spoke prior to the cutting of the Vassilopitta which had been beautifully made by one of the ladies present, Helen Mandama.

(NB Vassilopitta is a Greek Cake, named after St Basil, made for New Year’s Day).

  1. The New Year ‘Pitta” is very interesting to hear about and see. Living in my bubble of pitta bread savouries, it never occured to me that pitta may have a sweeter broader use and meaning. It does have connotation of breaking and sharing bread.
