Baking for Easter has started – February 28, 2013

February 28, 2013

Yes, the first batch of pascha (paska) bread is out of the oven. Today we made our first batch of six breads for Easter baskets. Each one is decorated with a 3-bar Cross and a weaved perimeter along the top edge. The bakers allow the dough to rise 3 times for more flavor. The citrus, sweet, egg-rich breads, in 3 sizes, with and without raisins, will be available at the Carmel Winter Market on Saturday morning and the church in the afternoon. Please call ahead to reserve yours. We will take orders up until Wednesday, March 20th. Not only good for your Easter basket they make a wonderful centerpiece for your Easter dinner table. Impress your family and friends.

Pascha Breads 2013-02-28

This Sunday, March 3, 2013, the parish is offering a pysanky class following Divine Liturgy at 10 a.m. and the enjoyable fellowship social in St. Mary’s Hall. The class will start at noon. We will be teaching and assisting egg decorators of all ages for up to 2 hours so you can concentrate on one or more masterpieces – you can choose to decorate up to 3 eggs. There will a nominal fee of $5 for supplies and you get to take home your egg(s) and handouts. We supply all you need (eggs, dyes, candles, writing utensil, design examples, and advice) so just bring your curiosity, talent and a friend.

Since the dyes can stain you may wish to bring clothes that are not your Sunday’s best, especially for children or those accident prone. (We do have disposable gloves but they are not very practical for this craft.) If you have questions or want to reserve your spot call the rectory at 317-632-4157 on Friday, March 1 from 9 a.m until 6 p.m. or Saturday 2 until 4:30 p.m.

See last year’s post.
