2019 Prosphora workshop

On Saturday, August 24, 2019, six members of our parish got together for a Prosphora Workshop.
We started and ended with a prayer for baking Prosphora.
Then, we all worked together to prepare the dough, cut it, stamp it, etc, and exchanged tips on techniques and tools.
It was a very productive morning.
