Epiphanytide Blessings

Traditionally, this feast is commemorated with a blessing and the "chalking of the door", where a priest writes 20+C+M+B+21 on the doorway. This marking has dual symbolism, presenting the 3 names of the wise men (Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar), as well as the latin blessing of Christus Mansionem Benedicat, meaning "May Christ Bless this dwelling". On Tuesday, Fr. Elias visited all of the classrooms to bless the students and chalk the doors. We pray for blessings upon the entire School community as we begin this New Year!
