Father Jerry will bless Easter food at 1:00 pm on Holy Saturday. According to custom, households may bring a sampling of their Easter meal (and/or food items from a child’s Easter basket) to church in a basket for the priest to bless. The foods may be personalized according to family tastes and customs. The blessing connects the Easter celebration with the ‘ecclesial’, the little Church of the home. The custom helps to bring Easter into the home around the family table.
