Text Box: EPIPHANY 
Epiphany is celebrated on January 8 and with special solemnity in churches in the United States on the Sunday between January 2 and 8. It closes out the Christmas season.  “Epiphany” comes from the Greek epiphanein, “a showing, appearance, or revelation”. 
       In the Western Church, the Epiphany evolved into a celebration of the gospel story of the visit of the Magi (Matthew 2:1-12) on the occasion of Jesus’ birth; His epiphany to the Gentiles. In the USA this Feast is transferred to the nearest Sunday (this year January 2nd). The Blessing of Water, Incense and Chalk will take place during all Novus Ordo Masses (Sat. Jan. 7th, 5.00pm and Sunday January 8th  8.30 & 10.30am) and Renewal of Baptismal Promises. Please bring  bottles for Holy Water. 
 
PARISH CHRISTMAS PARTY – SUNDAY OF THE EPIPHANY: Jan. 8 – after all Holy Masses.
       This weekend: Saturday, Jan. 7 & Sunday Jan. 8 we invite all our Parishioners to the Parish Hall to share OPLATEK – HOLY WAFER and to eat something. 
Text Box: Sunday Scripture
	
	Offering ourselves in humble adoration before Jesus enables us to shine like stars, leading many to Him. Magi from the East were led by a star to Jesus where they prostrated themselves in humble adoration and offered Him gifts fit for a king. May we, likewise, humbly adore our Savior, offering our gift of love. With hearts filled with such love we will shine like stars, helping to lead many to Christ.
	In today's first reading, Isaiah announces a new light coming to shine on the people. The second reading teaches that through Christ the Gentiles are given the promise of eternal life. The Gospel recounts the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child. They were wise men from the East, paying homage to the newborn King of the Jews.
