Events for March 6-7

  • Please join the Community Care Ministries as they facilitate Stations of the Cross on March 6th from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Worship Center. We will be focusing on stations: 4-Jesus meets his mother; 5-Simon helps carry the cross and 6-Veronica wipes Jesus’ face. Our theme will be healing for the three stations as perspective of those who are struggling in mind, body or spirit.

Women's Retreat - March 21

What do Saint Teresa of Avila, Castles, Women, and Retreat have in common? The answer is: A Journey to Mature Discipleship with St. Teresa of Avila, aka Region VII’s women’s retreat! You won’t want to miss this opportunity facilitated by Lucio Caruso! Conveniently, the retreat will be held at Epiphany. Meet everyone on Saturday, March 21 at the Lighthouse (Youth Center) at 9:00 am for a continental breakfast. The retreat will begin at 9:30 am and end at 3:00 pm. There is a lunch fee of $20.00.

Lucio has a great love for St. Teresa. And for the Catholic Faith tradition. Add to that his personality, and we’re blessed with a winning combination! He is an amazing, energetic, and engaging presenter – just ask anyone participating in this semester’s Tuesday evening Revelation study Lucio is leading. You can also ask participants of the Wednesday What Do Catholics Believe About series since he substituted one day this semester. He was so absorbing that the group stayed an hour longer than scheduled!

The writings of St. Teresa of Avila, a women of the 1500’s, have been a firm part of Catholics’ rich spiritual tradition for centuries. Her time in the convent included her struggles with the reality that people were often judged by material possessions, finding moments for quiet reflection, and dealing with her severe illness. All proved formative for the young women. So much so that she was named a Doctor of the Church!

Register by calling Epiphany at 245-9733 by Tuesday, March 17th.

Reflections on Sunday's Mass: March 8, 2009

March 8 is the Second Sunday of Lent. The first reading gives us a look at the seemingly cruel and tragic story of Abraham, who is told to “Take your son for a sacrifice.” As we hear in the story, we understand that God does not want the life of Isaac, just a complete surrender in faith from Abraham.
