In the Christian calendar, Epiphany marks an important moment when the light and love of the infant Jesus is recognized by the magi - the wise men. Epiphany literally means to manifest or show forth. As former Anglican Church of Canada Primate Fred Hiltz has said: "On this day the glory of the Lord was manifested to a world far beyond that manger where he had been laid as the Babe of Bethlehem. Now his glory was being revealed to the nations." Epiphany and the season that follows marks important moments in the life and ministry of Jesus.
The Entry into Epiphany will be from 9 am to 10.30 am, and will be repeated again from 6.30 to 8 pm.
Bishop Lynne will lead us in reflection and contemplation, and there will be an opportunity for engaging with Bishop Lynne and with each other. There will also be a time of silence and spiritual inquiry.
** More information, including on-line registration, will be posted shortly **
