Veror- Albanian Lenten Bracelet tradition - 03/07/2021

Historically, on Forgiveness Sunday, the Church School children and their teachers tied a Veror bracelet on their right hand, and kept it on until Paschal Vespers, when they cut it off, and place it on the bushes for the birds. Some of the adults of the parish also wore the bracelet in solidarity with the children.

This year, with continued COVID safety protocols still in place, the Church School children, who are learning remotely, are continuing the practice.
