easter_basketFather Jerry Dvorak will bless baskets of Easter food at 1 p.m. on Holy Saturday (March 30) at St. Peter in Richfield.

After a long Lenten season of abstinence and fasting, favorite foods are brought in a basket to the church for a special blessing. The foods within each basket may be personalized according to family tastes and customs. Children are encouraged to bring their own basket filled with fruits, Easter candies, chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. Everyone is welcome to participate in this tradition.

St. Peter is located at 6730 Nicollet Ave. S. Call the parish office at (612) 866-5089 for more information.
