Easter In Roncesvalles Village

Roncesvalles Village is full of colour this Easter weekend! Spring is in the air, flowers are on display up and down the street, and people are out in large numbers to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Easter is a major holiday in Polish tradition, and on Saturday Roncesvalles thronged with people carrying traditional decorated baskets with food to be blessed at St. Casimir’s Church. This food is not eaten until after a special Easter Sunday mass.

These photos from RVBIA Vice-chair Andrew Chomentowski tell the whole story.
