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.

Here is a printable sheet you can use for blessing your home.

ACTION: Equality Act is Dangerous and Misguided

Tell your Senators to Oppose the Equality Act!


  • Men in women-only safe spaces and sports
  • Every parents’ rights at risk
  • Religious liberty denied 
  • Gender identity over biology 
  • Even pro-life doctors coerced to do abortions
  • No conscious protection

The Equality Act is deceptively named and dangerous legislation.

A vote is expected very soon in the Senate, so please contact your Senators immediately!

Stations of the Cross

UPDATE: Here is the St. Francis of Assisi version of Stations that Fr. Carr prays. You can download a copy to print here.

NOTE: Below is a version of the St. Alphonsus Ligouri Stations of the Cross that you can use to pray at home or at the church. There are many variations in booklets and missals even for this version. You may follow along below on your phone or tablet, use the iPieta app, use a hand missal, or download a copy to print, but you should be aware that the version here is just a little bit different than the version in the booklets that Holy Trinity usually hands out.
