Sign up for the Epiphany House Blessing

Epiphany remembers the visit of the three kings to the Child Jesus in Bethlehem. As a way of honour this occasion there is a tradition in the Catholic Church of using chalk to write over the main entrance the following:

MM (For the first two numbers in the year ex. 20-18), + represents the cross which this child was born to endure for our salvation, C is for Casper - one of the Kings, M is for Melchior, and B is for Balthasar. Finally the last two numbers complete the new year (which will be 20-18).

If you would like Father Oehring or Father Joseph to come to your house for this blessing, please leave your information below and they will be in touch with you.

This will take place on Saturday, January 6th between 9:30am - 1:00pm.
