FIRST TIME SINCE VATICAN II EPIPHANY WATER BLESSING SAVANNAH DIOCESE 2021
Saint Ann'e’s Richmond Hill
HISTORIC EVENT THIS TUESDAY FIRST TIME IN THE SAVANNH DIOCESE SINCE VATICAN II EPIPHANY WATER
Make every effort to attend Saint Ann's parish in Richmond Hill this Tuesday for the Vigil of the Epiphany. For the first time since Vatican II Epiphany water will be blessed during vespers at 6:00 pm. There will be a high mass at 6:00 pm by Father John Paul Heiser, OSB. Following mass the Epiphany water will be blessed. Bring a container of water and make sure your name is on it. Spread the word and bring a friend. See the post below about the Blessing of Epiphany water and the Epiphany blessing of homes during the octave of the Epiphany: High Mass and Epiphany Water Blessing
Tuesday January 5, After the 6pm High Mass for the Feria After Circumcision, Father John Paul Heiser from Benedictine will bless Epiphany Water. Bring water to be blessed. Water, chalk, and instructions for the Home Blessing will be available after.
Epiphany Water has two exorcisms and is one of the strongest sacramentals of the liturgical year.

What is the best way to make holy water?
Boil the hell out of it.
A young Catholic priest once clearly told his former girlfriend she was not to come to any parish church where he was saying Mass.....It was EXcommunication.
St. John Cantius has been blessing Epiphany water for many years. They bless a huge caldron (I would guess 100 gallons), but it is never enough. I do my best to make sure I get some every year, but it is usually gone by the end of Masses on the Sunday after Epiphany. I am planning on getting over to church either for the Epiphany Mass or the next day to make sure I can get some.
I use it to do the Epiphany blessing of my house, each room and outside too, and keep some in the car for blessing the graves when I visit the cemetery.
So cool people will be able to see the ritual and get some. Maybe they can use it to bless some of those politicians who have moved into Georgia. ;-)
P.S. IF YOU LIVE IN GEORGIA, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE TODAY!
I wish I had made it tonight but I was voting in Bloomingdale Ga at 6 PM. God Save Us.
