High Tea held in honour of the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate

A tea was held in June in honour of the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate who have played such a vita role over the years in the prairies.   Sadly Calgary's Ukrainian Catholic convent closes after 62 years. It's hard to imagine that they will not be part of the community. 

Salads, open faced sandwiches, Tea sandwiches, Charcuterie board and a cheese and fruit platter were beautifully arranged on the tables in buffet style with two platters of each dish. 

Pizza open faced sandwiches

Cucumber open faced sandwiches with fresh dill

Potato salad  with chunks of ham and capers


Watermelon and Fresh Basil Salad, very colourful

Colourful Greek Salad

Smoked Salmon with capers and fresh dill

Cheese Spanakopita

Rose Radishes decorated the plates.

This was my plate of goodies!

In the Hall was a display of Korovai along with painted Easter Eggs.

Korovai, or Wedding Bread is a traditional centerpiece at Ukrainian weddings. It's round shaped with a twist or braid, then decorated with sculpted dough: doves to symbolize love and faithfulness.
