LED BY: PRESVYTERA CHRISTINA STAVROPOULOS
Orthodox Christians consider kolyva to be symbolic of death and resurrection according to the words of the Gospel: Verily, verily, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.” (John 12:24).
Wheat which is planted in the earth and rises in new life is symbolic of those beloved departed who have died in the hope of resurrection. As we prepare for the Saturdays of the Souls during Lent, learn to prepare the boiled wheat and teach your children to present the names of your departed ancestors and loved ones for prayer.
Please join us as we learn to make this offering of the ancient Orthodox Christian tradition.
DONATION IS $10. COFFEE & REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED.
