This annual event spans more than 60 years featuring traditional ethnic recipes.

Volunteers have been working over the last month preparing over 3,000 cabbage rolls, hundreds of potica rolls, braided bread, hundreds of varieties of candy, butter rings, colored eggs, potato and egg salads, pickled eggs and a huge variety of ethnic and baked goods.

Using only the finest fresh ingredients including organic flower, vegetables, and butcher prepared meats for that homemade taste – the Easter Bake Sale has tables and tables full of home-baked goods that will surely tempt your taste buds.

Lunch is served on both days starting at 11 a.m. and features those famous cabbage rolls, sloppy joes, shredded chicken sandwiches and along with vegetable and broccoli soups. The parish uses the funds raised from the Easter Bake for the purchase of wine, hosts and other Sacramental items used by the church throughout the year.

Over 200 volunteers from all faiths and walks of life work very hard to make this event a success and is a celebration of the charity and goodness of the wonderful people in our community.
