Paschal Baskets to be Blessed this Saturday

To prevent the evil one from stealing our Paschal joy (and festal foods!), baskets will be blessed during Saturday’s Open House from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. To participate, place your basket on the table outside the main doors of the church for Father to bless while you offer your personal prayers and meditation. As with the other Open Houses, clergy will strictly limit access to the Nave to ten people at all times (thank you in advance for your cooperation). 

Parishioners may also arrange a time through the Parish Office by email or phone (814-231-2855) for Father to bless your family’s basket before the front door of your home. Similar to home blessings, you will receive a time to place your basket outside; Father will ring the doorbell when the service is complete.
