Lenten Seder Meal
Council: 13861 - SANFORD
St. Therese of Lisieux Parish put on another Seder meal, thanks to the tremendous efforts of our fellow parishioner Debra Wilson. Debra organized, promoted, and coordinated this event – as well as sell tickets. Debra also facilitated the Seder celebration itself.
The St. Thomas Council, along with volunteers, assisted Debra Wilson in putting on this Seder Meal at the Parish Hall on Wednesday, March 28th. Knights and volunteers prepared the meal, set the tables, served the meal and cleaned up afterward. 67 Parishioners partook in this celebration.
The Seder meal included reading, drinking wine, telling stories, eating special foods, singing, and other Passover traditions. Each item had its place in a 15-step choreographed combination of tastes, sounds, sensations and smells that have been with the Jewish people for millennia.
Before the main course each participant had two sips of wine, Parsley dipped in saltwater and flat, dry cracker-like bread called matzah. The main course included: Lamb, mashed potatoes, green beans, and gravy. There was coffee and cake for dessert. After the main course each participant had more matzah and two additional sips of wine to conclude the Seder Meal.
This year’s Seder Meal was well attended and provided a fitting celebration to close out the Lenten season.
