Youth Group - Another Year in the Books and Congratulations Seniors!

What a year!  This year, the Youth Group welcomed new youth minister, Chris Luken.  The three months that he was here saw the Easter Vigil Retreat, a Junior High Lock-In and a Senior High Lock-In take place.  We have explored many faith based and spiritual topics including global warming, chastity, and how to read the Bible.

We have also enjoyed many fun activities including laser tag, cookout at Tom Sawyer Park, movies, games, and sports. We ended the year with a cookout on May 31 with fifty youth in attendance!


Artist, Jim Nuss, shares some of his work with Epiphany

Throughout the Easter season everyone entering the Worship Center has been able to enjoy a beautiful oil painting, a white bird soaring through shimmering sunlight over the glistening ocean. Community member Jim Nuss painted the “Spirit of Resurrection” as a gift for his Connecticut-native, ocean-loving wife, Georgia, back in 1974. While his artistic talents were recognized in his youthful days at Holy Trinity, where he was frequently requested to draw colored chalk murals, they were largely set aside during his time at St. X (except for his senior yearbook), and throughout his engineering and business studies at Purdue and UCLA. With their six children growing older and a move back to Louisville, he began to take up art once again.

Reflections on Sunday's Mass: June 14, 2009

This is the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. Christ’s redeeming presence among us as the new sign of the covenant. We receive the body and blood of Christ and take in the nourishing Word of God in order to become the body of Christ in the world.

  • Exodus 24:3-8. The covenant which God offers is a matter of life and death. The blood of the covenant was sprinkled as a reminder that all of life is in God’s hands.
  • Hebrews 9:11-15. Christ entered the sanctuary with his own blood for a new covenant.
  • Mark 14:12-16, 22-26. Jesus speaks of the messianic banquet, celebrated with new wine “in the kingdom of God…This is my blood, the blood of the covenant.”

Reflections on Sunday's Mass: June 7, 2009

This is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. We celebrate that the very essence of our God is relational – and that this God calls us to love and relate in the same intimate fashion: relationship and community are our source and foundation. By doing as Jesus did, we enter into the mystery of Trinity and learn more and more who God is, through the power of the Spirit.

  • Deuteronomy 4:32-34, 39-40. Moses recalls who God has been for Israel: the one who chose them, liberated them, and lived with them.
  • Romans 8:14-17. We are more than God’s chosen people. By the power of the Spirit working within us, we have been made children of God and joint heirs with Christ.
  • Matthew 28:16-20. We are baptized into the Trinity. Jesus reminds us that he is with us always.

Parish Welcomes seminarian Adam Carrico

Greetings Everyone,

My name is Adam Carrico and as a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Louisville I will be spending my summer assigned to Epiphany to learn both from Fr. Jeff and all the good things happening here. I have completed my first year at Saint Meinrad School of Theology and I am looking forward to finishing up the two year philosophy program next year and afterwards moving into the four year theology program. My time at seminary has been equally challenging and rewarding but I have enjoyed my time there and have learned a lot about myself and my calling to the priesthood.

To tell you a little bit about myself and where I have been, I grew up at Saint Aloysius Parish in Pewee Valley and went to grade school there as well. After that I went to high school at Saint Xavier and college at the University of Louisville where I earned a Bachelors Degree of Arts in History.

Please donate flowers for Pentost

As we approach the Feast of Pentecost (the weekend of May 30-31), it is our hope that we might “build up” our Easter Garden.  We would be grateful  for donations of flowers or plants.  Liturgically, the color is red for the Feast of Pentecost so we need to add some red color to our garden.
