Ahhhhh……the chirping of the first robins, the smell of fresh newly mown grass, the skies so blue and crystal clear, the gentle rains of spring refreshing the earth. All of this
turns one’s attention gently but steadily toward……..Medovniki? That’s right friends, the unmistakable sights, sounds and smells of the Sisters of St. Basil’s bake ovens firing up
once again as sure as the first robin sings and the spring grass grows!
This year, as in the past few years, the Province of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Uniontown was assisted with the baking project by Sisters from St. Cyril and Methodius Vice Province in Secovce, Slovakia. Sisters Sebastiana and Pavla were just
“rolling in dough” as we kneaded and kneaded and kneaded thousands of honey
cakes in preparation for the annual Pilgrimage. More than a dozen Sisters of St. Basil, along with several of our faithful volunteers, spent weeks rolling,
dusting, icing, decorating and packaging over 26,000 cookies.
Please join us for the annual Pilgrimage in honor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Labor Day Weekend and purchase a box or two of these “sweet treats”!
