Christmas Oplatky now available

Oplatky (“angel bread”) Christmas wafers are available in the sacristy and in the parish office for a $1.50 suggested donation. The oplatky are thin unleavened wafers similar to communion wafers. Today, in a concession to an ancient tradition, many people place straw and evergreen sprigs on a serving platter covered with a fine white napkin on which the oplatky rest. Families share the wafer on Christmas Eve as they gather together at the table, reconciling any differences, and remembering loved ones who have gone before them.
