Easter Bake Sale

 

Easter Bake Sale

The Easter Bake Sale has a long tradition in Lawrence. The event sponsored by the Sacred Heart parish Altar Society takes place the Saturday before Easter. Another tradition has recently been added to the event, that of blessing the food.

Above, Father Corey Harrison blesses the food with Helen Kohmetscher, Lisa Mazour and Linda Ostdiek watching. Rev. Harrison gave a short explanation for the simple service. He explained the tradition grew out of the Lenten practice of penance and suffering by people (most often too abstained from meat on Fridays). The arrival of Easter meant the celebration was often accompanied by delicious foods and the blessing of the food.
