2022 Epiphany Blessing
This weekend is the feast of the Epiphany! When you arrive at Church this weekend pick up some blessed Chalk (all entrances of church) to bless the entrance of your home for 2022

Instructions for Blessing the Home
Using the blessed chalk, mark the lintel (top of the fame) of your front door (or front porch step) as follows:

20 + C + M + B + 22 while saying:

The three Wise Men, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar followed the star of God’s Son who became human over two thousand years ago. May Christ bless our home and remain with us throughout the new year. Amen. Then offer the following prayer: Visit, O blessed Lord, this home with the gladness of your presence. Bless all who live or visit here with the gift of your love; and grant that we may manifest your love to each other and to all whose lives we touch. May we grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you; guide, comfort, and strengthen us in peace, O Jesus Christ, now and forever. Amen
