Oplatki is here!
Dec 18, 2018
The Oplatki wafers are available in the Narthex of the church. They are $3 a package.
The significance of the Oplatki Christmas wafer is that it shadows the Eucharistic meal that Catholics participate in at each Mass.
Just as we share in the Eucharist as one family in Christ and receive Christ’s love through the Eucharist, the Oplatki allows for one’s immediate family to come together and share the love they have for one another. This symbolism is deepened as the name of the town where Jesus Christ was born, Bethlehem, means "House of Bread," which makes the Oplatki tradition a beautiful way to celebrate the Christmas season.
