Our House Blessing...



In past years, it has been easy for us to somehow procrastinate and not get our house blessed in a timely manner after Theophany (see last year as an example!).  This year we over-compensated and scheduled our house blessing for the Sunday after Theophany directly following the Liturgy.  Almost everyone who came to church came to the service (they had no escape since the rectory is attached to the church!) and we celebrated with an ramped up coffee hour (our family provided a huge baked ziti, salad, garlic bread, and brownies,, plus lots of people brought things to share).  I think it was a big success!  I'm sitting pretty this week because I cleaned the whole house on Saturday in preparation for Sunday and now I have no house cleaning to do this week! 

P.S.  Little Man has been serving in the altar for about a month now.  Isn't he a cutie pie?

It is so interesting. We don’t have a tradition of blessing the home every year (we are an Orthodox deacon family living in Ukraine). But it seems to me so good and meaningful! Thank you for sharing!
