St. Anthony Parish
Archbishop Alexander has blessed us to carefully conduct Houseblessings in 2021. Following his suggestions, we offer two broad options:
- home blessing during the traditional Theophany season (most of the month of January up to the Saturday before Great Lent -- Mar. 13)
- home blessing after Pascha and/or in early summer when pandemic appears to be more completely "wound down"
If you wish to have a houseblessing during the traditional season in early 2021, please do the following:
- Set up a time via the online sign-up (or arrange an appointment directly with Fr. David if those times do not work)
- Verify the morning of the appointment (by text or email) that everyone in your household is healthy (cough-free and fever-free.) Fr. David will also verify the same (and will cancel if he does not feel well.)
- Fr. David will wear a mask and--following the diocesan directive--ask family members to wear one, too.
- While Fr. David loves spending time with you during house blessings, he asks that any hospitality shown this year be limited (not a full meal) and take place outdoors or in an otherwise large space where distancing can be observed. THANK YOU!
- Fr. David will begin blessing homes on Sunday, Jan. 10.
