But far more noteworthy was the house-blessing for our new parishioner Vilia (like the altar she hails from Lithunian, though she came through Michigan instead of Ohio) and her new octagonal (Buckminster Fuller?) dome house -- and the great time we spent with her and her family for the house-warming and blessing after Holy Communion today!
The house itself -- I was surprised to learn its age (not that old), because it looks brand-new. And even with the excellent condition she inherited, she has put her stamp on it.
And I was only one among many to remark today on how a house that looks so small from outside could be very roomy and comfortable. It's a lovely house in a lovely setting.
And when the time came the house was fully blessed, room-by-room, upstairs and down!
Welcome, Vilia, to you AND your family!
