History of baking hosts
After the II.World War hosts were baked on many places in Czech Republic. In the 50´s communist regime concentrated the production under Czech Catholic Charity and Dominican sisters started to make them in Broumov in the North-East part of Bohemia. In 1985 production was moved into Bílá Voda. Hosts were made there first by st. Vincent de Paul’s nuns, then by Premonstratensian Sisters.
