Epiphany update

Laudetur Iesus Christus and Happy New Year!  Here are some updates for this week:

Vigil of Epiphany Mass (Saturday – January 5)

As custom, Fr. Barone will generously offer a special Solemn High Mass for Vigil of Epiphany, Saturday January 5 at 5:30 PM, with blessing of Epiphany water beforehand. Please see details below:

5:00 PM* – blessing of Epiphany Holy Water, chalk and salt (please bring any water, chalk and salt to the chapel no later than 4:45 PM). *The blessing will begin at 5pm prompt. Large containers of water are fine to bring.

5:30 PM – Solemn High Mass

Location: Charlotte Catholic High School chapel, 7702 Pineville-Matthews Road, Charlotte, NC 28226

FYI – Epiphany Water is a powerful sacramental and the blessing prayer contains an exorcism and the litany of the saints.  Epiphany chalk is a tradition where the head of household can mark the mantle of the door as part of the Epiphany home blessing.
