Prosphora, Holy Supper Dinner

On Friday evening January 6, 2012 the Prosphora ( Holy Supper Diner )  was held at the Assumption Parish.  the Holy Supper Diner  is a traditional lenten meal on the Eve of the Nativity of Our Lord (Christmas Eve). Since Christmas is preceded by forty days of fasting, the Holy Supper is the last meal of the fast. The twelve fasting foods usually served are: barley, honey, stewed prunes, pyrohy, sauerkraut, potatoes, lima beans, garlic, lenten bread, mushroom soup and salt. The delicious traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner prepared by our parishioners was enjoyed by  seventy parishioners and guests.
