Every year the wonderful ladies of our Church get together to bake Babka and Paska. These traditional Easter breads are
made lovingly for distribution to members who can no longer make it out to Easter services and for sale within the Parish. This year these yummy treats were made for sale at our March Friday Night Dinner, and they were a hit! Lucky were the ones who managed to take home some of the breads.
