Oblatky: The breaking of the bread is a sign of friendship and love. As our Father in heaven shares His Son with us, so our earthly fathers give bread to their children and family to signify their love and concern in providing for their families.

Concerning this Volunteer Opportunity

This annual oblatky making event is held to support a long-standing Christmas tradition.

We gladly welcome you to volunteer for this opportunity of fellowship.

What is Oblatky?

Oblatky are wafers shared at the Christmas Eve meal
symbolizing Jesus Christ as the bread of life.

Oblatky are dipped in honey as a symbol of the sweetness and joy of the occasion.
Members of St. Paul still make the oblatky by hand, using 100-year-old iron pans.
Each member's household can purchase a dozen oblatky prior to Christmas.

Ways to Volunteer

In order to continue this special Christmas tradition, we need help from MEN and WOMEN of the congregation. Men are needed for the irons and Women for the trimming and packaging.

We need all willing volunteers to come out and help make the Oblatky; preparing the kitchen, mixing the batter, pouring the individual wafers, manning the irons, trimming the wafers, wrapping the wafers, preparing food, cleaning the kitchen. These are all jobs that need to be done by faithful hands to help make (breaking of the bread) among friends and family a continued tradition at Christmas time.

We know how busy your lives are and the importance of time management, so we are asking you to sign up for half hour time slots hoping this will enhance time management.

We require male volunteers to help in handling the irons.
There will be signup sheets in the Fellowship Hall
through Sunday, October 20th, 2019.

The Deadline for signup is Monday, October 21st, 2019.
If we don't get 6 MEN, for each of the scheduled days,
NO Oblatky can be made.

Mark your calendars.
We would hate to see this tradition come to an end, but we currently don't have the Men Volunteers Needed.

Contact John Sabol for more information.

Ways to Help Our Volunteers

The Oblatky Commitee is asking members to donate supper food for the workers throughout the baking schedule.

We need all willing donators to supply meat or casserole dishes for 12 people, also salads and desserts. Drinks will be provided.

Donations need to be in the kitchen between 4:00pm-5:00pm. on weekdays or 12:00pm on saturday.

Thanking you in advance.
