The Feast of the Epiphany – January 3rd

Sunday January 3rd. We celebrate on this day the great Festival of the Epiphany. The showing forth of Jesus to the world as God in human flesh is a momentous event for all who have faith.
Please join us in person at Holy Trinity Church for our Sung Parish Mass at 9:300AM where we will be observing strictly social distancing and safe worship with face coverings, Track and Trace, hand sanitiser. Fr Michael Morris will preside and Fr Paul Blanch will be the preacher.
This Mass will also be “live streamed” in real time on Facebook and later available on You Tube.
As we still look at the crib here in Church, Epiphany reminds us that we cannot stay there. Like the shepherds and the magi, we too are called to move away and take the light of Jesus with us.
We are asked not only to admire the light, but to be people of light.
As Jesus himself tells us, you are the light of the world and your light must shine.’ The light of the Epiphany is given to us as a gift, but we cannot keep it to or for ourselves. Through the quality of our daily lives and how we treat each other, we are called to make our families, homes, parish communities and the wider world a better and brighter place for all people, especially the poor and the marginalised.
May Christ the Light and the Light of Christ fill our homes, our families and our parish community this day and always.
Fr Paul
