Prosfora (Holy Bread)
The Greek word for Altar bread is prosforo, which means “an offering to God.” Bread represents life and once consumed, becomes part of us. Thus, in bringing the loaf of bread to God, we are offering our life to Him as a gift of our love. We give ourselves to God and He, in turn, gives Himself to us. We come to the liturgy not just to receive Christ but also to give ourselves to Christ.
Our Saint Mark Prosfora Ministry meets every two weeks in the Church kitchen and after prayer, spends time together making enough loaves for the upcoming Liturgies. All are welcome to attend and take part in this vital and sacramental ministry of our beloved Church.
There are no upcoming events.
