We Three Kings - Area House Blessings and Parties
This year we are blessing all homes in groups of 12 across the Season of Epiphany in January and February. We will bless homes in the early evening on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and then gather all together at one of the homes in that area for a conversation about our hopes for the church and a light social to conclude. We have not yet designated areas with dates, but just so you know, the priest will be out and about on 11 nights this coming winter: 1/7, 1/9, 1/14, 1/21, 1/23,/1/28, 2/4, 2/6, 2/11, 2/13, 2/18.
As in years past, we’ll be chalking the door and sprinkling clean the home with holy water, adding the aroma of frankincense and lighting candles in each home. It’s a simple ceremony but moving and meaningful. The gatherings which follow each area blessing will go from about 8 to 9 pm to allow for a short conversation, and a Q & A with a seasonal toast and cheer to warm our hearts. All members of the household are invited to the area gatherings.
