Epiphany House Blessings: if you would like your home blessed with Epiphany water and your doorways chalked with the initials of the Magi in blessing for the new year, please contact the clergy to arrange a visit in the Epiphany Octave. Water and chalk will be available to take home after Epiphany Mass if you would like to bless your houses similarly yourselves.
