Our very popular Seder (Passover) Meal will be held again this year on Palm Sunday, March 25th at 4:30 pm in the St. Pius X Parish Hall. This prayerful experience recalls the setting in which Jesus held his Last Supper. As prescribed in the Old Testament, the meal will consist of roast lamb (a limited number of chicken pot pies will be available upon request), and all the traditional vegetables. Not only do we vividly participate in the ceremony, but also enjoy a wonderful family style meal. Please make sure you call the office by March 18th so we can plan for the correct amount of food.
