Ypapanti, which translates to Presentation of Christ, Greek Orthodox Church has been an active and integral part of the East Pittsburgh community for almost 100 years. The Church was founded by a handful of Greek immigrants in 1915 who desired to maintain their proud heritage in the Church of their motherland. Over the years the Church's membership has grown to over 200 families from East Pittsburgh, Turtle Creek, Forest Hills, and surrounding neighborhoods.
The Church's campus expanded in May of 1984 with the construction of the Olympia Hall banquet facility. In August of 1984 the first Greek Food Festival was held in order to share the Greek culture with the surrounding community.
