Sunday of Epiphany - Jan 4, 2014

What is Epiphany? -  The Feast of the Epiphany centers in the visit of the Magi from the East. In that respect, it is a “Thirteenth Day” of Christmas, and yet, it also marks the beginning of a new liturgical season.  Where Christmas has focused on the Incarnation of our Lord, that is, on God becoming flesh, the Season of Epiphany emphasizes the manifestation or self-revelation of God in that same flesh of Christ.

The Season of  Epiphany starts January 6th ends with the Festival of the Transfiguration (last Sunday before Ash Wednesday).   For more information on Epiphany or any other season of the Church go to  CLICK HERE
