The first altar around which people of long ago worshipped was the hearth. The next altar was the family table. There meals were enjoyed and stories about the family were shared. The celebrants of these first rituals were the fathers and mothers of families. Today, we continue to look upon the home as a place of prayer and worship.
This virtual presentation will highlight what the domestic church of yesteryear was like. Ideas for sharing rituals, prayers and blessings in your home today will be presented. In this time of worshipping at home due to Covid-19, these ideas are most welcomed.
