Epiphany Blessings


Sunday, Jan. 3, 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 6:00 pm on Saturday, the Vigil of Epiphany, we will celebrate the special Epiphany blessing of Holy Water. This blessing involves a litany of the 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. If you would like to bring bottles of water to be blessed for your home use, please place the open container in front of the sanctuary. We will also have blessed salt available for people to take home.
