Ministries

The parish committees organize the work and the activities of the community. At any time there may be hundreds of parishioners engaged on dozens of projects from planning liturgies, to providing outreach, to maintaining the buildings and grounds. If you are looking for a way to serve we are sure that there will be something here to interest you.

  • Parish Pastoral Council The Parish Pastoral Council is the leadership body for the parish. It consists of elected, appointed and ex-officio members representing the entire faith community. It evaluates and monitors our ministries and sets goals and direction for living out our mission. To read recent council minutes, click here.
  • Administration Administration oversees the financial operations of the parish and is involved in safeguarding parish properties and assets. Other administrative tasks include accounting, budgeting, financial reporting, collection counting, auditing, building maintenance, computer operations, personnel, security, technology, and preservation of our natural resources. The pastor appoints members of the Finance Advisory Council. The Finance Advisory Council meets on the third Thursday of the month. 
  • Religious Education and Lifelong Formation 
    • Adult Formation. The mission of the Adult Formation Team is to provide parishioners with opportunities that weave Catholic faith with their lives through a diverse balance of scripture, tradition, education, and fellowship. 
    • Family/Children's Formation. Parish Family Formation is a program involving all age levels. The belief is that religious education is a life-long, on-going process. We witness to God in such a way that children as well as adults can grasp the central place of faith in their lives.
    • The Rite of Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and Candidacy for Full Catholic Communion are two programs for those seeking membership in the Catholic Church. 
  • Community Life
    • Community Care.The Community Care Ministry of the Church of the Epiphany is dedicated to the care of the members of our faith community. We recognize that everyone has the right to feel better – body, mind and spirit – regardless of their health, prognosis or condition. We are committed to accompanying our fellow Epiphanites as they travel through life’s journey. We dedicate ourselves to helping them reach for the best that life has to offer them. We will do so with compassion, respect and full knowledge that the gifts of us all can only be fully realized through caring for our Minds, our Bodies and our Spirits.
    • Community Spirit. The Epiphany Community Spirit Committee ministers to the everyday needs of our people, supports family and community life through social activities and cares for the health and wellness of individuals. We celebrate significant events, enrich and strengthen the overall sense of community in our parish, and call forth the gifts of parishioners as we bring the Epiphany community together. Parishioners will find special support in a variety of like-to-like ministries for: separated, divorced or widowed; youth; elders; singles; men; women; and employment seekers.
