House Blessings

House blessing speaks of the meaning of family and home and the importance of faith within its walls. The house blessing is not about chasing out evil spirits, but serves as a symbolic gesture of living our faith,

Catholic House Blessings

O heavenly Father, Almighty God, we humbly beseech Thee to bless and sanctify this house and all who dwell therein and everything else in it, and do Thou vouchsafe to fill it with all good things; grant to them, O Lord, the abundance of heavenly blessings and from the richness of the earth every substance necessary for life, and finally direct their desires to the fruits of Thy mercy. At our entrance, therefore, deign to bless and sanctify this house as Thou didst deign to bless the house of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob; and may the angels of Thy light, dwelling within the walk of this house, protect it and those who dwell therein. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Translated by Most Reverend J. H. Schlarman Bishop of Peoria

House blessings can easily be arranged by going to the Parish Office during office hours and completing a form with your personal details, after which, the priest will get in touch with you to arrange an appropriate day and time.
