Confession followed by Divine Liturgy & Blessing of Water.
BLESSING OF HOUSES BEGINS SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2019
Please sign the sheet in the Candle Room with your preferred date.
When a home is blessed, Father Bohdan brings everything needed for the blessing: Holy water, A "krupilla" (brush for flinging the holy water), Bowl for the water, Candles, and Theophany icon.
The family should provide Father Bohdan with a list of all family members, living and deceased.
The bowl and icon should be placed on a clean table with a cloth on it, preferably near the family icon corner.
It is good for candles to be lit. The house should be clean, with all radios and televisions off.
Father Bohdan will bless all rooms of the house. In homes with children, it is always good for the little ones to carry a candle or a small cross and "lead" Father Bohdan throughout the house. An elder member of the house may also do this.
