The Service of the Sanctification of the Waters is a Prayer service for the Blessing and healing of our body and Soul, livestock and property. Through the Prayers of the Priest and the faithful, the water becomes Sanctified by the Holy Spirit, and we Bless everything around us with this Holy Water.
Holy Water Blessings can be Prayed for many situations including for the Blessing of a home, shop, new business, the beginning of the school year, crops, farms, livestock, vehicles, the beginning of each new Month and the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The Small Blessing of the Waters
This Service is Prayed in Church at the beginning of each Month, and also at any time for a Blessing throughout the year. The Holy Water is taken home in a bottle and drank by the faithful each morning as a Blessing.
The Great Blessing of the Waters
This Service is Prayed on the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord in the Jordan, and the Holy Water from the Great Blessing is to be kept at home for the rare occasion when the faithful cannot receive Holy Communion, and when one is very ill.

“Drink Holy Water, the more often, the better. It is the best and most effective medicine. I’m not saying this as a Priest, I’m saying it as a doctor, from my medical experience.” – Saint Luke the Surgeon
