BISHOP BRENNAN BLESSES EASTER FOOD BASKETS THIS HOLY SATURDAY
The Most Reverend Robert Brennan, Bishop of Brooklyn, this morning joined the Polish community of Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church in Maspeth for the annual blessing of their Easter food baskets. Bishop Brennan was joined by Auxiliary Bishop Witold Mroziewski.
“This blessing of the Easter baskets, and of all the foods, is so beautiful because it connects the family and the Church. It’s beautiful to see so many of you gathered as families, to see different generations of people here, coming together to the Church to ask for God’s blessing,” said Bishop Robert Brennan.
“We remember the works completed during this time of Lent. We thank God for the graces we have received through the season of prayer, fasting, and works of mercy. Today connects us with the Joy of Easter when we will celebrate that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead,” continued Bishop Brennan.
This morning’s prayer service was attended by more than 300 people. Two children from the parish presented Bishop Brennan with an Easter food basket in appreciation of his visit. Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church is located at 61-21 56th Road in Queens.
