Epiphany Blessing for our School

Fr Philip came to bless our school with chalk on the Feast of the Epiphany

An ancient Christian custom associated with the Epiphany is the blessing of homes with chalk. The chalk is blessed in church and then the doorway is marked.

20 + C + M + B + 18

The letters CMB have two meanings. They are the initials of the three wise men: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. They also abbreviate the Latin words Christus  Mansionem Benedicat, May Christ Bless this House. The + sign represents the cross and 2018 the year.
