Epiphany of the Lord

Announcements Liturgy

Sunday, Jan. 5, is the Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord.

Our Mass times will be 8:30 am and 11:30 am, with the Saturday Vigil (Spanish) at 7:00 pm as usual.

We will have blessed chalk available after all the Masses for people to take home and use for the Epiphany home blessing.

Holy Water Blessing

At 1:00 pm on Sunday we will celebrate the special Epiphany blessing of Holy Water. This blessing, which can only be celebrated on Epiphany, involves a litany of saints, the singing of psalms, and exorcisms of the salt and water to be blessed. It is at this time that we bless all the holy water used in our parish throughout the year. Please bring empty bottles which you can fill with this special holy water to take and use in your own homes. We will also have blessed salt available to take home.
