Teuta celebrates Patronal Feast Day - 02/04/2008

The parish's Ladies Society named in honor of the Illyrian Queen Teuta, celebrated its Patronal Feast Day, the Meeting of the Lord - "Papandia".

Traditionally they offer bread, wheat, wine and oil for the celebration and a boiled wheat-honey-nut confection (called grure in Albanian, or koliva in Slavic cultures) for the health of the parish family.

This year, as in years past, the ladies present are called to stand vigil around their offering for the prayers.

The Teuta Ladies dedicate themselves to the promotion of the Faith through fellowship, and sponsor fundraising events throughout the year in support of the parish.
