Blessing of Easter Foods

On Holy Saturday morning, members of our Polish community brought their Easter baskets of food to the church to be blessed.  Known as Święconką, which is the name for the blessing of the basket of food which is prepared on Holy Saturday, this is one of the most enduring and beloved Polish Easter traditions.  Święconką is always eaten for Easter Sunday festive breakfast.
