    EXETER — Mrs. Griseto’s sixth-grade religion class at Wyoming Area Catholic School recently participated in a Seder prayer service.

    The primary aim of the Seder is to pass down the story of the Exodus, a central event in Judaism. In the Christian tradition, the Passover Seder is also believed to be when Jesus instituted the Eucharist.

    Students gathered around a table and shared a ritual meal of bread, apples, eggs and grape juice. The meal is meant to symbolize faith and celebrate tradition.
