Thank you for giving us the opportunity to bless your house. We will arrange for either a priest or deacon from St John Paul II Catholic Church to conduct the blessing. Please have a crucifix available, if possible. Typically, the priest or deacon will complete the blessing ceremony in about 30 minutes. Please complete the online form below to request a house blessing or call the parish office at 904-330-0153 if you have any questions about or changes to the scheduled house blessing.
Please note: We will bless houses that are within the parish boundaries of St. John Paul II Church. If you are outside this area, please contact your local church for a house blessing.
St John Paul II Catholic Church
O heavenly Father, Almighty God, we humbly beseech Thee to bless and sanctify this house and all who dwell therein and everything else in it, and do Thou vouchsafe to fill it with all good things; grant to them, O Lord, the abundance of heavenly blessings and from the richness of the earth every substance necessary for life, and finally direct their desires to the fruits of Thy mercy. At our entrance, therefore, deign to bless and sanctify this house as Thou didst deign to bless the house of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob; and may the angels of Thy light, dwelling within the walk of this house, protect it and those who dwell therein. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
