Epiphany House Blessings 2017

Our homes are places where love is nurtured and grows, and practiced day after day after day. It is the foundation for our spiritual formation and center of Christian practice.  Jesus was known to have visited many homes and offered blessings to those he visited. Epiphany is traditionally the season when we bless homes for the new year and dedicate ourselves, our lives, and our homes to God. Come to worship on January 7, 2018 to receive your own piece of blessed chalk and prayers for blessing your home. If you would like Rev. Mary to offer a blessing at your home, please email her at rector@stpaulschatham.org.   Read more
