Christ The King

Chalking Of the Doors

This week our staff and children have learnt about the Epiphany and the ago old tradition of “chalking the door”.  This ritual marks the occasion of the Epiphany with God’s blessing of our lives and homes (and classrooms!)  We used chalk and holy water blessed by Canon Luiz Ruscillo (former Blackpool based priest and friend of our school, now in Carlisle) to mark each classroom door.  We wrote the letters C, M, B on the door which represents the names of the Magi  visiting Christ – Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar.  A huge thank you to all who engaged in this event especially Mrs Kennerley, Mr Hatjoullis, Mrs Lewis and Mrs Sladkiewicz
