The Epiphany

The Epiphany is depicted in a mural titled "Adoration of the Magi" in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception at Conception Abbey in Conception, Missouri and was painted by Benedictine monks in the late 1800s. We will celebrate The Epiphany is January 6, 2013.

The Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ is celebrated on the 6th of January each year. This year the sixth falls on a Sunday! The Epiphany reminds us that the birth of Jesus is not only Good News to the Jewish people, but is Good News for the whole world. The Magi represent the rest of the nations understanding this and they bring their gifts to honor the King.

Join us as we celebrate The Epiphany on January 6, 2013 at St. Alban's. We will celebrate at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. with Holy Eucharist using the proper reading for the feast.
