From the Pastor
House Blessing01-07-2018Fr. Don Kline, V.F.
One of the great Christmas traditions of the Church is to bless one's house to start a new year; and in a perfect world we the priests and deacons Peter and Mark could get that done for all of our parishioners before the close of Christmas on January 8th. Breaking the numbers down for our 2000 families that would mean each of us would need to bless about 42 homes a day for the 12 days of Christmas, which would be a fun challenge for us and probably the making of an insane Hallmark movie [or our next fundraising opportunity]. In lieu of that, we will instead provide in this bulletin the prayers for the blessing of a home during the Christmas season. Why blessed with chalk?READ MORE
