Celebrations surrounding feast days are an integral part of our Catholic tradition. The custom of sharing food and festivities after liturgical events is a practice that has been observed for ages.

Each and every Christian country has its share of traditional dishes made from recipes handed down for generations. Many times the entire meal is prescribed by custom and its least detail is symbolic in meaning.

We hope that you will find many recipes that you will enjoy trying and that in doing so you will enter more fully — even in the natural order — into the Church's celebration of its mysteries. Note that there are many similar recipes to compare and discover the best version for your own family.
