Your priest will start at your family altar - whether that's a single icon or cross or a more elaborate family altar with several icons, etc. The whole family will gather for the house blessing and follow the priest to each room…"
Hi, My family became catechumens last year on St. Basil day. We did not have our house blessed last year, but we have since changed churches and I was thinking about it again this year.I noticed at the house of one of our friends from church that they have 3 black burn mark of crosses on the top of their doorways to each room. We go to a Serbian church; is that how they do house blessings? I didn't notice it at the home of a friend from the Antiochan church we went to.Thanks,KimSee More
