Animated by the Holy Spirit and rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, we are the Community of Epiphany on a pilgrimage of faith. In response to our baptismal call and sustained by prayer:

  • We choose to live the Gospel of Christ with humility and compassion.
  • We embrace diversity and nurture the unique gifts of all.
  • We search for the truth in a complex and changing world.

TrinityThis is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. We experience God as a living presence whose very nature is communion - relationship! “...God is a flow, a radical relatedness, a perfect communion between Three - a circle dance of love [perichoresis].” (Richard Rohr, “The Divine Dance, The Trinity and Your Transformation”) Physics now shows that this relatedness is not only in God, or among us, but is imbedded in the very atoms of all creation. At the subatomic level scientists describe “quantum entanglements”: the state of each particle cannot be described independent of the others. Thus, “Pick a flower on earth, and you move the farthest star.” (Physicist Paul Dyrac)

God created all things in relationship, mirroring the very nature of the Trinity. Divine life and love extend beyond the Trinity to us and to all that is. May the mystery of the Trinity draw us to go deeper into ourselves – to be in touch with the Divine within us, and beyond ourselves – to an intimacy with God that moves us outward to live in solidarity and love with all God’s amazing handiwork.

Obituary for Evelyn Pusateri

Evelyn PusateriEvelyn Joan Pusateri, 87, of Louisville, passed away at her home on Friday, June 2, 2017.

As a cancer survivor, she lived life to the fullest; loved movies, the arts, and dancing. She was long time member of the Church of Epiphany; from the time mass was held in St. Thomas gymnasium.

Just short of Life Master, she was an avid bridge player. She brought the first Remax to the Louisville area in the late 1970s and thereafter labored with great integrity during a remarkable career in which she was named the Realtor of the Year in 1988; president of the Louisville Board of Realtors in 1989; President of the Kentucky Board of Realtors in 1992; director of the National Association of Realtors in 1999; and, as a trustee in the Kentucky Real Estate Education Foundation. For her vital and lasting contributions within her profession, she was named the well-deserving recipient of the John R. Carpenter Award and the 2004 Wall of Honor Award.

Memorial Day 2017

Memorial DayOn Memorial Day (May 29, 2017) about a hundred people gathered at Epiphany for Mass and a reception. Veterans and their families, and other Epiphany parishioners and friends came together to honor those who have died and all who have served our country, to pray for peace, and to share memories.

K.C. Scull, retired Army Colonel (and involved particularly in Epiphany’s music and prison ministries), gave an opening reflection: “This holiday is rooted in the years after the Civil War when the survivors of battle and the families of the fallen, made a point annually to visit the grave sites and battlefields where their soldiers had died, decorating the grave markers with flowers, wreaths, and flags. This practice became ingrained in the societies of both the Union and Confederacy. The federal government established Decoration Day 1888 and created the official designation of Memorial Day in 1967.”

PentecostThis is the Feast of Pentecost. After fifty days of Easter feasting, today we celebrate the gift of the Spirit to the followers of Jesus, and the power of this Spirit in the church. The scriptures remind us that the Spirit leads us to solidarity with each other, the whole world, and all its people. The Spirit does more than make individuals feel good or different. The Spirit breaks down barriers between peoples. The Spirit changes behavior and moves us into community. The Spirit calls us into action.

The coming of the Spirit transforms the Christian community. Locked doors are opened. Fear is replaced by courage. Peace is proclaimed. The power to forgive sins is present. Those who were afraid now speak up boldly. Thousands hear the message in their own language.
