Father stopped by to do the traditional Epiphany house blessing, and after a quick trip back to the church to retrieve the thurible, we were on our way. 

As a side note, this was Father T.'s first Epiphany house blessing in over 20 years - WOW, I pray he is able to exercise more of his Priestly roles in the coming years.  If you are in the SE Minnesota area and would like to contact Fr. T, parish info can be found here.

Epiphany, the 12th day after Christmas, celebrates the visit of the three kings or wise men to the Christ Child, signifying the extension of salvation to the Gentiles.  Epiphany falls on Thursday, January 6, 2011. In most countries, including the United States, the celebration of Epiphany in 2011 is transferred to Sunday, January 2.
