“O God, Who by the fruitful virginity of blessed Mary hast bestowed upon mankind the rewards of eternal salvation: grant, we beseech Thee, that we may experience her intercession for us, through whom we have been made worthy to receive the Author of Life, Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord: Who with the liveth and reigneth.”
(Collect from the Mass in the Extraordinary Form for the Octave-Day of the Nativity – the Circumcision of our Lord)

We are in the midst of the beautiful Christmas Season (December 25, 2016 – January 8, 2017). On the Epiphany (celebrated on January 8th this year) we will bless our home in accordance with tradition and with our desire to live in a home blessed by Christ.
St. John the Baptist provided a form for the Epiphany House Blessing for its parishioners. We are posting a copy of that blessing for your use here. The USCCB has another version of the blessing here.
May you and all in your home be blessed abundantly by God during this New Year!
A Most Important Matter: For at least two weeks, the bulletin has noted the alarming, disturbing and most frightful news – the large coffee pot is missing.
WHERE’S THE COFFEE POT??If anyone has borrowed the Church’s large coffee pot can they please return it.
