hello, i have a quick question,

Tomorrow it the 1st Sat of the souls.
I wanted to bring koliva to the Church for our departed relatives.
But my mother made Prosfora (the round bread, with the Isus Xristos nika stamp on it) she insists that's ok, that its normal to bring prosfora.
Is she right? or when i go to church on Sat are people going to look at me like I'm weird for not bringing koliva.

BTW: this is specifically for a Greek Orthodox Church.

Thank you

Both kollyva and prosphora are brought to the church for commemorations. The prosphora is used by the priest in the altar for commemorations during the proskomide, and the kollyva are distributed to all after the mnimosynon.

Ok, thank you, good to hear that!

We have another problem though, the stamp did not come out after baking!

To make sure the imprint of the stamp remains after rising and baking, the piece of dough which will be stamped needs to have extra flour kneaded into it to make it stiffer, so it will not rise as much. That way, the imprint of the stamp won't disappear.
