Come have your Easter food blessed on Saturday, April 3rd, at 1:00 pm in church! It is an old tradition in many countries to bring a sampling of some of the food you will be preparing or serving for the Easter dinner and have them blessed by their local priest. Many people put their items in a large basket (or several baskets). The items are sometimes meat, eggs, bread, desserts, chocolate bunnies...whatever you plan to serve. Don't miss out on this beautiful tradition!
