Epiphany Party!

Latest Posts

The word “epiphany” is used even outside of Christianity, meaning a moment of sudden realization, insight, or manifestation. In our case, the Epiphany was the revelation of Christ as God’s gift to the world. The Magi, or Three Kings, responded with gifts of their own - gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And even today, we celebrate Christmas by giving gifts to one another. Sometimes, we are competitive gift givers, each of us trying to outdo others by buying the “best” Christmas present.

But the ultimate Christmas gift will always be Christ himself. He laid the foundation for a family of believers that we all belong to today. As Christ led by example, so many people in our parish have followed his lead. Some parishioners help in ways that are easy to see, like Choirs, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Ushers, Greeters, Altar Servers, Grounds and Garden,The Pew Pals, and the Social Committee. But there are so many ministries that perform essential duties that we may not think about often, and sometimes don’t even realize are happening. The Ladies and Gents Cleaning, the crew that cleans the rectory, the Sacristans, the Candle Ministry, the Writers of Prayer, the Finance Committee, the Parish Pastoral Council, , Pastoral Care, The Development Committee, Letter Writers, the Homebound Ministry, the Money Counters, and so many others come together to get things done around our parish.

During this season of epiphanies, we would like to take time to recognize the gifts we are given as a parish, and the generous parishioners who give them. Father Mark, Father Matthew, Sister Kathleen, and the parish staff would like to thank all parish volunteers, who do a superb job of following Christ and the Magi’s examples.

To celebrate our wonderful volunteers, all are invited to our annual Epiphany Party. We will spend the afternoon enjoying drinks and refreshments, and showing our appreciation to our many volunteers.
