Epiphany Schedule and Traditional Blessings

Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas, is on January 6th. Traditionally on the vigil of the Epiphany, there is a special blessing of Holy Water and salt.

On the day of the Epiphany there is a special blessing of chalk, gold and frankincense.

A priest or the father of the family (or a senior family member) uses the chalk and the Epiphany Holy Water to bless the family home.
