Each year at the beginning of the new Church year (September 1), we make visitations to bless the homes of parishioners.  This act reminds us that our homes are the little churches — extensions of the one Church.  By blessing our homes, we continue to invite God to dwell with us.  We are reminded that the cornerstone of our homes and families is Christ.  At the blessing of new homes, we pray that the home be founded on unshaken faith in Christ. Call the office to schedule your home blessing, at 330.434.0000.
