The annual celebration of a Slovak Mass and Easter customs breakfast will be held at Prince of Peace Parish on Pittsburgh’s South Side on Saturday, March 16. The celebration will begin with the rosary recited in Slovak at 9:45 a.m. at St. Adalbert Church, 160 S. 15th St., followed by Mass at 10 a.m. Father Peter Haladej will celebrate the Mass in Slovak while presenting the homily in English.

The menu includes sunka (ham), paska (sweet bread), siretz (a cheese made of eggs), kolbasy (sausage) and pysanki (dyed hard-boiled eggs). Also featured are cultural displays, demonstrations of Slovak-style braiding of palms and a large display of hand-decorated pysanky. Baked goods, imported gifts and religious items will be for sale.
