SwieconkaOn Holy Saturday, 3rd April, we will celebrate the Polish tradition of Święconka, the Blessing of Easter Baskets.

As with all of our Holy Week and Easter ceremonies this year, this will take place via webcam only: we invite families to gather in their homes with their Easter Baskets at 11.00 am to receive the blessing.
