The Feast of St. Scholastica at The College

So many doughnuts...

Today we celebrate the Feast of St. Scholastica a day early, as this year Ash Wednesday falls on February 10.  Each year on this feast the Sisters bring some sweetness and joy to The College of St. Scholastica in the form of doughnuts. Today’s mix includes jelly-filled doughnuts which are called paczki in Polish neighborhoods, and are a traditional celebration of sugar and fat on Fat Tuesday before we head into the austerity of Lent.

May our double feast of St. Scholastica and Mardi Gras be filled with joy as we look forward to a lenten spring-cleaning of our souls.
