St. Basil Bread

Good Neighbours
Every year, we start by sharing in the beautiful tradition of the St. Basil bread, called in Greek vasilopita. After the Divine Liturgy, bread is offered to St. Basil; the bread is blessed and broken among those present. Every leader of the community receives a piece of the bread, and brings it to those they serve.
Pictured here, Mary from Good Neighbours Drop-in in Scarborough shares the St. Basil bread with a regular visitor. (This year the bread was baked by Penka, and it was so good that it made the bakers nervous.)
