Father Matthew Bakes Prosphora with Father Terry

Every Divine Liturgy a special loaf of bread is offered together with the wine on the altar. This bread is called prosphora, a Greek word meaning "that which is offered". This bread is stamped with a seal which impresses words and symbols representing Christ, the Virgin Mary, the saints, living members of the community, and departed loves ones. Father Matthew teams up with Father Terry, the priest at Holy Assumption in Clifton, one of our sister parishes to bake a large batch of bread for the upcoming weeks.
