Narrative



Easter Food Basket


Saturday 15th April 2017
Blessing of Easter Food Baskets

This Polish tradition filled the Church with families each holding a basket of Easter Food. The tradition was to bring the food that will be consumed on Easter Sunday to Church the day before for a blessing. The baskets now tend to contain items which have a symbolical meaning such as decorated eggs, salt, bread, sausage, ham, horseradish sauce, and some greenery. Each has it's own meaning such as the small lamb made of sugar represents the Lamb of God.Click Here to see the blessings for each group of food.
