2017 marks the 175th ANNIVERSARY of the Church of the Epiphany in downtown Washington. Much has changed from the residential, tree-shaded neighborhood from which this congregation emerged in 1842. One thing that has remained the same is Epiphany’s care for and connection with the community that surrounds it.
To mark our 175th Anniversary, we are highlighting 365 people and events, one per day, that form a tapestry of our past and help to tell the story of who we are today. Meet some new faces and get a fresh perspective on some old ones. The date of remembrance is the individual’s death date representing the time of their passing into the fuller life. A cross at the end of a name indicates a priest; at the beginning of a name, a bishop. Events are remembered on the date of occurrence.
Be sure to check back each week of 2017 for your dose of Epiphany history!
We at Epiphany are called by God to journey together in faith, to reveal the presence of Christ in the world, and to proclaim the Reign of God, by sustaining a community in which all are welcome, by celebrating liturgy that nurtures us and sends us forth, and by caring courageously for our neighbors and ourselves.
