O Little Town of Bethlehem

On January 3, the optional memorial of the Holy Name of Jesus, we gathered to bless our new statue of Jesus. The ceremony began at 4:20 pm when we informally gathered by the garage.

Our chaplain read a number of prayers of blessing and sprinkled the statue with holy water.



To conclude the ceremony we sang 3 verses "O Little Town of Bethlehem". It was not considered a public event, but we did invite our generous benefactors who helped make this special occasion possible.
 
May all those who look upon or pray before this statue of the Child Jesus be blessed in a very special way.
