Items to be Blessed Clarification

Regarding the upcoming blessings this week:

Tuesday, the 5th of January, the “vigil” of the feast of the Epiphany: there will be the blessing of Epiphany water (and salt if you would like your salt blessed as well).  Please label your bottle (or bottles) and bring large bottles of water, not a pack of little ones.  (For example, 5 gallon or one gallon jugs are good, a 10 pack of 16 ounce bottles are difficult to work with during the blessing.)If you bring salt on Tuesday, there is no need to open it.  Please leave salt packages closed.

Wednesday, the 6th of January, the feast of the Epiphany: one may bring chalk, as well as gold, frankincense, and myrrh to be blessed after each mass.

Please understand that these blessings are assigned to specific days in the Roman Ritual.  Please only bring the appropriate items on the appropriate days (as explained above).
