Epiphany

or, The Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles, is tomorrow and our Sung Eucharist will be at 1030. There will also be the traditional Blessing of Chalk. Worshippers are encouraged to take it home and make the following mark above their front door

20 + C + M + B + 19

C+M+B stands for the names of the Three Magi - Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar - but also stands for Christus Mansionem Benedicat, or Christ Bless This House. At the start of the year it's a reminder of asking for Christ's blessings on our homes, and that our homes are meant to be blessings for others

 

See you at St James on Sunday!
