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

Concerning this Volunteer Opportunity
This annual oblatky making event is held to support a long-standing Christmas tradition.
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 Help
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
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.
Signup sheets are located in the Fellowship Hall.
Your cooperation in signing up by the deadline of September 30th
is gratefully appreciated.
Mark your calendars.
We would hate to see this tradition come to an end!
