Ice storm cleanup: Thank you!

A giant "thank you" to the generous crew of volunteers who came out a week ago to clean up our grounds from the ice storm.  We filled four commercial size dumpsters, cut up lots of firewood, and chipped countless limbs and branches for mulch.  What an outstanding stewardship effort!

Refelctions on Sunday's Mass: March 29, 2009

March 29 is the Fifth Sunday of Lent. What is it like to have the covenant “written on our hearts?” How do we become the seed that dies, the servant who follows, the one who lives for others?

Reflections on Sunday's Mass: March 22, 2009

March 22 is the Fourth Sunday of Lent. The covenant between God and the people is not pretend, or only historical fact. It is also eternally renewed in the return from Exile, in Christ the light of the world, in graced faith.  We are reflecting on Stations 9 & 10: Jesus falls the third time, Jesus is stripped of his garments.

Church of Epiphany Scouting Legacy

Many Epiphanites of all ages are involved in scouting.  Boys and girls often first get involved through troops at their schools, and there are many Scout Troops and Packs chartered with parishes throughout the Archdiocese.   Few parishes have fully embraced Scouting as has Epiphany, which has held the Charter not only for Boy Scout Troop 71 but Venture Crew 71 and Cub Scout Pack 71, for almost 25 years.
 
Meeting at the Lighthouse, the Boy Scout Troop offers programs for boys 11 to 18 years old, and Venture Crew a co-ed program for 14 – 21 year olds. The Troop is engaged in parish life at Epiphany, and has most recently been very generous in helping return the Epiphany grounds to normalcy following the aftermath of Ike and again following the ice storm.

 

The Troop is engaged spiritually as well. We have had two scouts, Sam and Michael Medley, participate in the RCIA program. On Sunday January 25, Arch Bishop Kurtz presented 10 Louisville area Scouts with the Ad Altare Dei Catholic Scouting Award.  This award represents an extended commitment on the part of these boys to more deeply explore their Catholic Faith, and better understand Catholic values, rituals, and sacraments. We at Epiphany can take pride in having five of the ten recipients as members of our Troop 71. These young men are Jake Evans, Danny Scrivener, Tyler Minoff, Sean Murphy, and Willy Ramper.
