Many Ukrainian Easter Traditions at Good Friday Fish Fry

Submitted by: Joyce Trevellyan |

The Good Friday Fish Fry was a huge success with approximately 250 people enjoying delicious servings of battered cod, popcorn shrimp, fries, coleslaw and cherry cheesecake.

There was Easter Paska and Babka bread available for sale as well as some beautiful pysanky (painted Easter eggs). A traditional Ukrainian Easter Basket was won by Andrea Adams.

The traditional Ukrainian Easter Basket is blessed and then consumed after the Easter Sunday Holy Resurrection Mass. Certain foods symbolizing the life and passion of Jesus are carefully prepared for the basket.

We would like to thank everyone for their support.
