The Feast of the Epiphany and Epiphany chalk

At the 5pm Vigil Latin Mass at Morriston today, 4th January, the chalk will be blessed ready for each family to take home and inscribe the names of the Magi above their front door, normally on the lintel but, sometimes on the door itself..

It is usual to chalk the following:   20 + C+M+B + 14 (according to the year)

It is an old Catholic custom and more may be read on it HERE
