Chalk Blessings

Epiphany (which means “revealing”) commemorates the Magi who came from the four corners of the world bearing gifts and following a star to meet the child who would become king. We celebrate Epiphany to remember that we too are invited to come and witness the life of Jesus and be blessed as we begin a new year.


Each year, using blessed chalk, people mark the doorpost of their home with an inscription of the new year separated by C+M+B.


Year 6 marked the Feast of the Epiphany by creating our own chalk blessings.
