Need a mid-week boost? Join us each Wednesday at 10:00am for an intimate Eucharist service in the choir stalls, followed by refreshments and fellowship.

Celebrating our Heritage — The Parochial Committee is planning an event, Celebrating Our Heritage, on Saturday, September 29 from 9:30 to 11:30am, and everyone is encouraged to attend. This will be an opportunity to share memories and experiences about the Church of the Epiphany over the decades, and significant events in the life of the surrounding community and the nation. 

Share the warmth — Bronte’s annual coat drive is underway! Your donation of new and gently used coats (child and adult sizes) can be dropped off at the Rebecca St. fire station from September 1 through October 12.

Exploring Tattoos on the Heart - Gregory Boyle is a Jesuit priest and the founder of Homeboy Industries - the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. His book Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion is an incredible story of compassion, grace and redemption that reveals the unlimited power of God's love for every human being. Join us for our discussion of this powerful book  on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 pm through October 3.

Weekly Calendar - Keep up to date with what's happening at Epiphany!



​Weekly message from the Interim Pastor​​​












What a great parish picnic we enjoyed last Sunday! Many thanks to Liz and our grill master Mike, along with their many  helpers. And thanks to everyone who attended.

On Sunday we will fast forward through a chapter of Mark's Gospel and hear Jesus' second prediction of his death and resurrection, followed by another teaching on discipleship. After last week's prediction and teaching, surely the disciples get it this time, right? Wrong! They seem about as clueless as ever. I imagine occasionally we feel a little clueless about our faith, our beliefs, and how we are to live our lives as Christians. I believe that there is strength in our questions, and that sometimes our questions are more important than the answers. Like the disciples, we too are on a journey, and as Anglicans we are more of a journey church than an answer church. That's not to say we don't have any answers, it's just that we don't claim to have every answer to every question. On Sunday we will continue our faith journey with Jesus and our exploration of the questions. See you in church!


Blessings,
Lou+
