The Feast of the Epiphany will be celebrated on Saturday morning, January 6, with the Blessing of Water at 9:30AM, Mass at 10:00 and a pot-luck brunch following. Due to the cold weather we have been experiencing, a frozen water pipe and the consequent lack of running water at the church meant that our celebration of the Circumcision of Our Lord on January 1 had to be cancelled. However, this problem has now been resolved and we can continue our schedule of services as planned.
It is time to schedule Epiphany house blessings. As 2018 presents a very short Epiphany, please speak with Fr. Nicholas or Fr. Raphael to schedule yours by February 3. It is helpful if we can schedule several house blessings in the same area on the same day.
Our annual Parish Meeting will take place after the Liturgy on Sunday, January 21, at which time we will elect new Parish Council members, discuss a proposed budget for the new year and hear reports of various parish activities. Please plan to stay for this important meeting of our parish family.
We will continue to collect canned goods for the Food for the Hungry collection through Sunday, January 14.
