Polish Easter basket blessing set for March 31 at Cathedral.


Polish Easter basket blessing
set for March 31 at Cathedral 
Swieconka, Polish Easter basket blessing, will be held at the Cathedral of St. Paul on Holy Saturday, March 31, at 9 a.m. Swieconka (sh-vee-en-soon-kah) is one of the most enduring and beloved Polish traditions. Baskets containing a sampling of Easter foods are brought to church to be blessed on Holy Saturday.
The basket is traditionally lined with a white linen or lace napkin and decorated with sprigs of boxwood (bukszpan), the typical Easter evergreen. This
food is shared on Easter morning in a ritual breaking of the fast. Observing the beautiful foods and creations of other parishioners is one of the special joys of the event. All are welcome!
