February 3- Choral Evensong

Join us for Choral Evensong on Wednesday, February 3 at 6:00pm. Experience the music of Adrian Batten & William Byrd, sung by Schola Epiphaniensis.

At this service we will mark the feast of Candlemas. Candlemas, also called Presentation Of Christ In The Temple, in the Christian church, festival on February 2, commemorates occasion when the Virgin Mary, in obedience to Jewish law, went to the Temple in Jerusalem both to be purified 40 days after the birth of her son and to present Jesus to God as her firstborn (Luke 2:22–38). The festival was formerly known in the Roman Catholic church as the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and is now known as the Presentation of the Lord. In the Anglican/Episcopal church it is called the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.

January 24 Church Closed


The Church of the Epiphany will be CLOSED on Saturday, Jan. 23, Sunday, Jan. 24, and Monday, Jan. 25 due to severe weather.

A Note from the Interim Rector:

“By his command he sends the driving snow…” – Sirach 43.13a

Being reminded we are not in control may be a difficult lesson but one we continue to learn.
Please stay safe as we weather this storm. Our prayers for one another will be what binds us in worship on Sunday. I invite you to spend some time with the gospel reading and, if possible, post your reflection on our Facebook page. It will be interesting to see how each of us hears the word of God in this new context. I, for one, am excited to hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s people.
Be safe and God bless.
Elizabeth Gardner
Interim Rector
