Please note . . .
Experience the Joy of the Magi: Have your home or office
blessed in the season after the Epiphany! "On coming to the house,
they saw the Child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down
and worshiped him" (Matthew 2:11). It is customary for homes
(and offices) to be blessed throughout the season after Epiphany.
A short and dignified liturgy performed by a member of the Redeemer clergy, these blessings sacramentally set apart your home
or office for Christian use throughout the new year. Please contact
Father Charleston ([email protected]) to have your
home or office blessed by a priest on staff. Visits may be scheduled at any time and create the ideal opportunity to share God's
blessing with friends, colleagues, and family.
Contributions to our Caritas Food Pantry are always welcome
and very much needed by people in our community. Thank you to
all who so faithfully contribute to that ministry. There is a large
box in the narthex for pantry items.
