Traditional Wigilia 2019

Traditional Wigilia 2019

Christmas is the most special time of year, especially for Polish people. We cherish our Christmas traditions of breaking oplatek, and singing of Polish Christmas Carols, Koledy. Every year we gather as a Polish community, families, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances who may even turn into life long friends, while celebrating our wonderful Christmas eve dinner.

Polish Christmas Eve Dinner is traditionally a meatless meal which traditionally begins with the opening prayer, then the breaking of oplatek which are wafers that we share with each other as we share well wishes for the new year and thank each other for all the wonderful things we received in the old year. The dinner typically consists of creamy mushroom soup or red beet borscht with mushroom dumplings, pierogi, fish, sour kraut, pickled herring, and many other foods but this covers some of the basics for the meal. For dessert, our favorite part! We usually have Makowiec – poppyseed roll, sernik – cheesecake, and piernik – gingerbread loaf.

We hope that you can join us for this wonderful Traditional Wigilia 2019 ! And we wish you all the best this holiday season from our family to yours!

We suggest you make reservations early since we have only a limited number of seats available.

Traditional Easter Dinner – Święconka

Picture of the fabulous “babki” for sale that are homemade by our ladies!

Babka (singular) – “babki” (plural) are sweet yeast cakes

Polish Easter would not be complete without Easter cake (babka): a tall, round, 10-yolk sweet yeast cake with a hole in the middle that can be compared to the American election cake.

Nie bój się kochać

Nie bój się kochać

Nie bój się kochać – Jan Twardowski

Polsko Kanadyjskie Towazystwo Teatralne – Salon Poezji, Muzyki i Teatru w przedstawieniu teatralno muzycznym granym na wielu scenach świata

“Trójka wędrowców szła przez te wszystkie krajobrazy i każdy z nich niósł inne emocje, które znajdujemy w wierszach poety – od wielkiego smutku do radości. Przy przepięknej muzyce Jerzego Boskiego i Dariusza Króla zanurzenie się w świecie poezji było oczyszczeniem dla nas wszystkich. W Polsce odbywały się wieczory poezji ks. Jana Twardowskiego, lecz były one oparte wyłącznie na jego wierszach. Uznałam, że wzbogacanie poezji wyobraźnią muzyczną i obrazem cudownej polskiej przyrody, tak drogiej, szczególnie dla nas, emigrantów – jest szalenie ważne.” – Maria Nowotarska fragment z książki Beaty Gołembiowskiej “Teatr bez granic”

Kazimierz Braun pisał: “Jego poezja jest niezwykle prosta i bezpośrednia, a zarazem ufundowana na autora niezłomnej wierze, bezwarunkowej nadziei i wszechogarniającej miłości. Ks. Twardowski ośmiela nas i zachęca abyśmy nie bali się kochać Boga, Bliźnich, piękna, a także dobrego, mądrego i pięknego teatru. Przedstawienie “Nie Bój się Kochać” jest wyjątkową okazją poznania wyjątkowej poezji i przeżycia szczególnych wzruszeń teatralnych”.
