Advent Beginnings: Proskomedia, Prosphora, and Thanksgiving Joy at Mother of God Joy of All Who Sorrow in Princeton, NJ

Mother of God Joy of All Who Sorrow (Princeton, NJ) marked the start of Advent by applying the lesson from the recent diocesan religious education workshop. Church school instructors Kristina Baktis and Carrie Ellmore-Tallitisch taught children about proskomedia using the lesson from the workshop “Blessed is the Kingdom: A Catechism-Based Church School.” Matuska Jeanne Baktis taught the children how to make prosphora the following Saturday. On Sunday, Fr. Peter Baktis celebrated proskomedia in front of the parish using the children’s bread. Children read the names of their living and departed loved ones while Fr. Peter commemorated them. Fr. Peter gave a children’s sermon that focused on Thanksgiving Day as a Eucharistic celebration.
