Blessing of chalk

One of the folk ceremonies associated with the Epiphany is the Blessing of Chalk. This reminds us that the Feast of the Epiphany and the Baptism of the Lord are joined together in the Church’s worship.

The prayer of blessing for your home is set out below. It accompanies the marking of your front door or lintel with the blessed chalk.


The three wise men:

K         Kaspar,

M         Melchior,

B          and Balthasar

followed the star of God’s Son who became man:

20          two thousand

22        and twenty two years ago.

++        May Christ bless our home
++        and remain with us through the year.
