What’s New


The Polish custom of sharing and breaking bread, or the Oplatek, is a wonderful tradition that has spread through many Catholic churches around the world. The white, unleavened wafer is shared during Wigilia, the traditional Polish Christmas Eve meal. Family members and friends break off a small piece of the “oplatek” wafer and give it to one another along with best wishes. Breaking off and exchanging part of the wafer with someone is a symbol of forgiveness between two people and is meant to remind participants of the importance of God, God within each of us, and how that relates to Christmas and family unity.

Everyone is invited to a Live Nativity presented by our youth tonight, December 19th at 7PM at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church Hall in East Pembroke. We hope that you will plan on joining us for this wonderful expression of faith and the birth of Jesus. This is a free event.
