(Please follow carefully!)- Each family may bring ONE container for blessing; it must be filled in advance with plain water.- If you cannot come to the blessing in the evening, you can drop off your pre-filled water container after the morning Mass. – For practical reasons, the bottle MUST have an easily removable cap that is sufficiently large (no smaller than a standard milk-jug-sized opening); containers with narrow necks will NOT have bleesed salt added to them.
