BLESSING OF THE HOMES - 2022
Dear loyal Parishioners, as a result of the latest directives of the Health Authorities of our State and having in mind the transmissibility of the Coronavirus variant Omikron, the Holy Archdiocese of Australia with a deep sense of responsibility, has requested that our Priests NOT conduct the Blessing of the Homes this year, for the protection of both our People and our Priests from this contagious virus.
Nonetheless, with the permission of the Archdiocese, our Parish of St Catherine as with other Parishes, will be visiting all the homes of our area, without knocking on the door, and will be leaving a bottle of Holy Water from the Great Blessing of Epiphany and the 2022 Wall Calendar.
Alternatively bottles of Holy Water from the Great Blessing or Epiphany will also be available at the conclusion of the services on the 5th, 6th & 7th January.
Father Stavros together with the Parish Committee, express the fervent prayer that the Blessing of Epiphany come upon all of our devout Parishioners.
WISHING EVERYONE HEALTH AND LOVE FOR THE NEW YEAR
