Celebrating the Feast of Theophany

The Feast of the Holy Theophany (Epiphany) of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ is celebrated each year on January 6. The Feast commemorates the Baptism of Christ and the divine revelation of the Holy Trinity. At the Baptism of Christ, all three Persons of the Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—were made manifest. Thus, the name of the Feast is Epiphany, meaning manifestation, or Theophany, meaning manifestation of God. At the Children’s Liturgy (Mass),  the blessing of the waters was conducted in the church.  After the service, Fr. Ivan  blessed the school’s classrooms and students with holy water and in his prayers asked  God to have mercy on the school to rid it of every evil and to fill if with every blessing.  Fr. Ivan’s visit was a wonderful way to begin the New Year!
