Does the Church approve of Christian Seders held at parishes?

Full Question

Does the Church approve of Christian Seders held at parishes?

Unapproved private devotions, no matter their nature, should not be publicly celebrated on Church property because the mistaken impression is given that there is Church approval where such approval does not yet exist.
