EPIPHANY HOME BLESSINGS
We will be giving Epiphany home blessings beginning on the Vigil of the Epiphany, Jan. 5. Please sign up on the sheet at the back of the chapel if you wish to have your home blessed. We will try to bless every home, but if necessary, homes previously blessed can have their blessing renewed by the head of household with the family. (See the Rite for the Blessing of a Home booklet in the back of the chapel, or print your own here in English or Spanish.)
