March 31, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am EDT
In Slavic countries the blessing of Easter foods was an important tradition. This blessing is still found in the updated Roman Ritual, and is a wonderful practice. Many parishes still participate in this custom of the blessing of the Easter food or baskets. The parishioners take special pride in preparing a decorative and tasteful basket filled with foods having a symbolic meaning. Observing the creativity of other parishioners is one of the special joys of the event. All are welcome. Please arrive early, church will be open from 10 a.m. There is no mass/ services, only the blessing of the Easter baskets, which will take place at 11 a.m sharp.
