OPLATKI
ARE HERE
!

The oplatki are available at the Parish Office.
 Proceeds will go to ST. John’s Youth Ministry for Work Camp

“Oplatek” is derived from the Latin word “oblatum,” meaning gift or oblation, and has a Eucharistic connotation. Oplatki (oh-PWAHT-kee) are authentic traditional Christmas wafers popular in Polish, Slovak and Lithuanian cultures. Oplatki are baked from pure wheat flour and water and they are embossed with Nativity scenes. The tradition of sharing the Oplatek on Christmas Eve is a wonderful opportunity for families to gather and reconcile any differences, and to remember loved ones who have gone before them.
