Swieconka
Swieconka: a traditional polish practice of blessing the Easter Breakfast Basket. This took place at the Good Shepherd Church by Canon Philipp Ziomek. Each member of the family has a bite of all the blessed foods after Holy Mass on Easter Sunday. This begins the feasting on salamis, eggs, salads and cakes. The contents of the Easter baskets are symbolic of Our Lord's passion and Resurrection, His generosity and favour.
