A custom of Polish people is to have a basket of representative foods that will be served at their Easter celebration blessed in church on Holy Saturday. In addition to Polish delicacies, there are colored Easter eggs, specially baked bread and butter carved in the shape of a lamb. Last Saturday this blessing took place at Our Lady of Mercy Church with Msgr. John Pikulski, a weekend associate priest of the parish, officiating. With the merger of the Catholic parishes in Port Chester, congregants of the former Sacred Heart Church on Willett Avenue have worshiped at OLM and continue many of their Polish traditions.
