Retreats: Why You Should Take Advantage of a Retreat

Stress: We all experience stress in our lives and find many ways to cope with it. Did you know, according to a study by the National Institute of Mental health, one-third of teens report feeling anxiety, while 62% of college students feel “overwhelming anxiety”, a survey states from the American College Health Association. Factors of stress often derive from conflict in relationships, classwork, and thinking about the future (what will I do after I graduate?). Our teens are busier than ever before!

Retreats are a wonderful opportunity to take time to escape for a short time from the loudness of our world, to grow in relationship with Christ and others in community, to listen prayerfully to God, and find peace and clarity. Let’s encourage our youth to dedicate time with our Lord, to release our worries, stress, and fears, and receive wisdom, peace, and Christ Himself through the various retreats that are coming up for our high school students and young adults.

Las Posadas

December 16-22, 2018: 6:30-8:00pm

You are invited to join our Hispanic brothers and sisters in their Las POSADAS celebrations! They will be held Dec.16 through 22, from 6:30-8pm in the Community Center. Las Posadas (meaning “lodging” or “inn”) commemorates the journey that Mary and Joseph made from Nazareth to Bethlehem, and their search for a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to Jesus. The story of the Nativity is re-enacted with great exuberance, and has been an important part of Mexican and many Latin American Christmas traditions, commonly taking place as a “novenario” on each of the nine nights leading up to Christmas (representing the 9-month pregnancy). Las Posadas is about pilgrims and a pilgrimage, rousing song, prayer and deep faith—with fellowship and fun. Each evening will begin with a prayer (Mass on Thursday), then children will take turns acting the parts of Mary and Joseph who lead the way looking for a place at the inn. A special song (La Cancion Para Pedir Posada) is sung, and then all gather for food and fellowship. You are invited to attend any time during the week, but you are especially welcomed on Tuesday, when there will be more English speakers to help you understand the Spanish.

Epiphany Prayer Chain Ministry is here, offering care through prayer.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving

let your requests be made known to God.  -- Philippians 4:6

Worship and Community Care Ministries are collaborating to facilitate a new Prayer Chain Ministry, and follow-up with requests made for special prayer intentions.  Epiphany entrusts our Prayer Ministers with the sacred honor of praying for intentions held dear by our community. They commit to praying for the people and intentions shared, to treasuring the sensitive and sometimes confidential nature of the requests, and respecting the vulnerability of the people in need.  

Are you, or is someone you love, facing a difficult decision, having health challenges, struggling with grief or unemployment?  Is there a particular situation in our local or global community that weighs on your heart and mind?

If you have an intention for which you’d like prayers, please fill out a form at the Welcome Desk,

call the office (245-99733), or email prayer-requests@epiphanycatholicchurch.org.  

Be prepared to help us fill out a short intake form,

as someone in the ministry will be following up with you.

Intentions and names can be confidential.

Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2

To volunteer as a “Prayer Minister,” to hold the requested intentions in your personal prayer, please email  linda@epiphanycatholicchurch.org or call the office (502-245-9733) to sign up by sharing your name, email and phone number.  Volunteers are requested to complete a short, one-time orientation before participating.



Bags of Compassion

Ministry of Administration at Epiphany Catholic Church

Ever wonder what happens when you drop your weekly or monthly donation into the collection basket?  What happens with those envelopes?  Thankfully, Epiphany is blessed with dedicated Collection Counters.  They are a vital part of Epiphany’s operations.  Our counters dutifully serve each and every weekend throughout the year, ensuring that the heartfelt donations of our parishioners and guests are properly organized, counted, recorded, and deposited.  They prepare the collection so that our Parish Bookkeeper can track those funds in our computer database – making sure that each member or guest receives credit for their donation and recording those funds in our Accounting system.  This is no small task and we rely on each of our counter’s knowledge and attention to detail to help us maintain accurate records on the very generous giving of our parish family and any guests which join us.

Did you know that we have teams dedicated to the different weeks of the month?  These teams rotate on each of the Sundays of the month throughout the entire year.  Teams consist of a head counter along with three or four other parishioners who divide up the task of sorting the envelopes, organizing the checks, counting the cash, and documenting the funds received.  We utilize the procedures given to us by the Archdiocese, which have been developed to safeguard the donations of our parish family.  Some of the many procedure guidelines include that teams must have two or more people present – all counters must initial the collections bags – two people must deliver the bank deposit - and so on!

Collection Counting is one of those “behind the scenes” tasks that our faithful volunteers take care of for Epiphany.  Counting the generous donations is the first step in monitoring the finances of the church.  Your stewardship dollars help provide so much at our parish.  This includes funding of our wonderful programs, paying for the talent of staff, keeping the lights, heat and air-conditioning, and water running, maintaining our beautiful grounds and facilities, allowing us to offer speakers and programs to enrich our spiritual life, as well as all the other worthy things that Epiphany parish does in our community.  If you have any questions about this or any other Administration Ministry or might be interested in becoming a Collection Counter, do not hesitate to let us know!  Contact: Mary Downs or Lynne Webb

Sunday Reflection

July 15, 2018: The 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time.


 In Christ we have been called, chosen as we are - in all our brokenness and vulnerability - to continue his mission. To carry on the ministry of Christ we need simply to follow in his footsteps, and do as he did.  We are the ones to continue the prophetic ministry of Jesus in our times--and we can do it, through the power of the Spirit!

“It is the Paraclete Spirit, the "Comforter", who grants us the courage to take to the streets of the world, bringing the Gospel! The Holy Spirit makes us look to the horizon and drive us to the very outskirts of existence in order to proclaim life in Jesus Christ. Let us ask ourselves: do we tend to stay closed in on ourselves, on our group, or do we let the Holy Spirit open us to mission?” - Pope Francis


Sunday Reflection

June 17, 2018: the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Today’s scriptures remind us of all God does to bring forth life – God’s reign is like seeds mysteriously growing to fullness.  And like a shoot from an old tree becoming a new creation, we, too, become new creations in Christ. The reign of God comes about through the intersection of our own work with God’s work.    It is our lifelong journey of living the gospel that makes the reign of God present in our time. Isn’t it wonderful that God invites us to cooperate in this great work! The scattered seed will yield a harvest, even though we might not see it now - so we can “walk by faith, and not by sight.”

“Faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey.”  -- Pope Francis

This weekend we celebrate Epiphany’s 47th borthday!  We also continue our Prayer for Parish Discernment and send blessings to fathers, grandfathers, godfathers and all men who have mentored and cared for us!

The Readings:

  • Ez 17: 22-24. God’s kingdom is universal, a sprout of the Davidic tree. All nations may find shelter therein.

  • 2 Cor 5: 6-10. In whatever we are doing we are courageous and try to please the Risen Christ. We walk by faith, not by sight.

  • Mk 4: 26-34.  God’s reign is greatest in the smallest things. We understand the sowing of the seed to be the word of God, and its harvest depending upon its growth in us.
