  • Swieconka – Blessing of Easter Food:
    • 10am St Alban’s Church.  The blessing of meat, eggs and bread at the end of Lent is a Catholic tradition particularly popular amongst Polish people. It’s called Swieconka (which is pronounced as: Sh-vee-en-soon-kah).  Our Priest will bless the baskets of food, prepared and brought to church by families. The idea is that the baskets of food will be taken back home to be shared amongst family and friends on Easter Sunday. Everyone is welcome to come along for this simple informal service.
