St Joseph's Roman CatholicPrimary School

To grow daily in God's love, blossoming in His will

Blessing of the classrooms

We celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany with mass in the Chapel, followed by ‘Blessing of classrooms’ where we followed the three kings as they visited each classroom, blessed it with holy water saying

‘The three Wise Men, Casper, Melchoir and Balthasar, followed the star to where Jesus was born two thousand and twenty-two years ago. They did him homage and offered him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.

May Christ bless this classroom and all those who teach and learn this year. May it be a place of joy and peace. Amen’

It was such a special  time and as we wrote 20+C+M+B+22 CMB is Latin for

Christus Mansionem Benedicat (Christ bless this house) at the same time the letters are the first letters of the wise men Casper, Melchoir and Balthasar.  

We thank Mrs O’Connor for making these beautiful memories with our children – giving meaning and depth to special liturgical events.
