Pysanky & Prayer for Ukraine

Event details

  • Saturday | April 9, 2022
  • 2:00 pm

Please join the Holy Cross family in a prayerful Pysanky Workshop for Ukraine.

The workshop is full.

Please contact  to register your interest in a future class or for other inquiries.

Pysanky, or Ukrainian Easter eggs, are a lenten tradition passed down through generations of Ukrainians as a way to contemplate and express faith and community.

Because this art involves raw eggs, permanent dyes, and candles, participants must be 10 years or older and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.  Masks are required while inside the church.

The suggested donation for Pysanky decorating is $20, but donations of any amount are welcome. Holy Cross does not want financial hardships to impede your participation, but if you are financially blessed, please be generous!  Cash, checks, and text-to-pay will be accepted.

If you would like to donate but not attend, text HCPAY to 73256 and select “Ukraine Support.”  All donations will go to the Episcopal Relief and Development Ukraine Crisis Fund.

The event is limited to 30 people, so sign up quickly to ensure your spot!

The Sanctuary will be open during this time for prayer and contemplation for those who wish to pray for those impacted by the war in Ukraine.
