OPLATKI ARE HERE!
now have oplatki available at the Parish Office. A donation to cover
the cost of the oplatki would be greatly appreciated.
“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.

From a Column by the Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde featured in the
Arlington Catholic Herald
…. This year, we have truly sought to enrich our own faith life,
turning ‘ad intra’ to a deeper relationship with Christ. So, what
now? By continuing to grow in our faith, we become chords of
Christ’s love to others, turning outwards, ‘ad extra’, to the world.
With the end of this Year of Faith, I ask you to ‘cast into the
deep’ as evangelists, burning with a love of Christ and a desire to
share the Good News.
