Holy Saturday
Today we had a traditional blessing of the food. We bring our baskets full of all the good things on which we will feast after our lenten fast ends at Easter.

Each of the food items in the baskets is linked to an element of Christian faith. The tradition is Slovakian, but at our church it's kept alive primarily by our Polish community (and Nona Rosa, a token Italian!). The boys are Polish from Grandpa Cliff's side, so they enjoy the opportunity to connect with their ancestral roots.

I guess I was the token Scottish/Irish/Canadian in the group! Our basket (not photographed) needs a bit of work before next year.
