Wassail is a beverage of warm mulled cider, drunk traditionally as an integral part of wassailing, a Medieval Christmastide English drinking ritual intended to ensure a good apple harvest the following year. "Here we go a-wassailing" meant going door to door singing Christmas carols. (see Wikipedia)
Resurrection's non-alcoholic Wassail recipe includes apple cider, orange and lemon juices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. On the Third Sunday of Advent, December 16th, Gaudete ("Rejoice!") Sunday when we light the pink candle on our Advent wreath, all are welcome to enjoy some Wassail and sing Christmas carols in the Gathering Area from 9:30 - 10:00 a.m. in between Masses. Coffee, juice, and donuts will also be served.
