We will be making Lenten Pretzels today in the Vestry after worship. Pretzels have an important meaning during Lent. Pretzels were made as far back as the 5th century as a Lenten food in Italy, Austria, Germany and Poland. The Latin word (bracellus), meaning “little arms”, eventually became the word pretzel. The dough was shaped to look like two arms crossed in prayer. All are welcome to come down to the Vestry and try your hand at making these wonderful pretzels and even getting the chance to eat them.
