April 8, 2012 Easter Sunday
This began as a snow day.
We spent the day in Prague, and started with St. Margaret’s Catholic Church. The service included a Mozart mass with orchestra and soloists, in the organ loft above the packed church. Very celebratory! We attended the baptism of our friends’ son, and were happy to be a part of the ceremony.
