Forgiveness Sunday 2021

On Sunday, March 14, we celebrated Forgiveness Sunday.

After Divine Liturgy and Vespers, which included a prayerful rite of forgiveness, adjusted to the health precautions needed in time of pandemic, we also needed to modify our traditional Blini party – you can see here pictures of our Blini party 2020!

It was too cold to gather even outdoors, so our efficient sisterhood organized a safe Blini takeout, with everything prepared in separate containers.

Enjoy these pictures taken by Sharon:

As you can see, our blini reflect our international backgrounds:
some real Russian blini,
some thicker ones closer to an Irish version,
and some French crepes – without the essential yeast that make traditional blini, oops!
