A memory from Palm Sunday in 2019........

Before we went downstairs for our Annual Fish Dinner - Fr. George waved his palms and began singing "Happy 10th Anniversary" to us!  We marked ten years in our Easton CT home.

On Forgiveness Sunday

Celebrating Great Lent

The red is said to represent summer (heat) and the white is winter (cold) with the combination marking the turning point in the season.

The Martisor is worn by women throughout March as it is believed they bring strength and health in the coming year. At the end of March, the Martisor threads are tied on a branch of a fruit tree as that is supposed to bring wealth and prosperity.
