On March 23, the Edward Gervickas Lithuanian Heritage School celebrated Palm Sunday and Easter. Students, teachers and families gathered for a fun morning of various activities.
Skirmante Philippone, Ausra Clifford and Virginija Mockevicius led a group of students in making Lithuanian palms with fresh greenery, pussy willows and dried flowers. The palms were given to members of St. George’s Church for Palm Sunday Mass.
Marguciai, Easter eggs, were made using two methods. Students dipped glass pin heads in melted bees wax to make pretty designs on hard boiled eggs. The eggs were then put in bowls of dye to add color. Irmunda Bergoltz and Regina Juodeikiene showed students how to wrap fresh eggs in silk, greenery or onion skin. The eggs were then put in stockings and boiled. This produced colorful eggs with imprints of the greenery.
Students also watched a DVD on Palm Sunday and Easter celebrations in Lithuania. Students learned that Lithuanians share the same customs no matter where in the world they live.
The Lithuanian Heritage Society of Rochester together with the Edward Gervickas Lithuanian Heritage School sponsored the 4th annual winter picnic on February 2, 2013 at Black Creek Park in Chili.
