Happy New Year from SUMC! 
We invite you to participate with Salado UMC in an Epiphany Blessing of Homes. In some parts of the world, there is a custom of gathering in places of residence or work to ask God’s blessing on those dwellings and upon all who live, work, and visit there. A short ceremony is performed, and the dwelling or workplace is marked (usually at the front or main entrance) with sacred signs and symbols. Epiphany commemorates the visiting of the Christ Child by the Magi with their gifts of gold, incense, and myrrh, and this blessing ceremony is linked to that visit.  

For your convenience, materials to participate in the

Epiphany Blessings of Homes can be found here:

We also encourage you to share your photos of your sacred signs and symbols from the blessing of your home! You can email pictures to sbrown@saladoumc.org
