FROM THE PASTOR
Today we celebrate the Feast of the
Epiphany. It is also called the Feast of the
Three Kings. The Feast reminds us that Jesus came to save
all people. On this feast, and as we begin the new year
we should welcome Jesus into our lives as did the wise
men of old and as wise men still do today.
Thanks to all for your kind and generous donations on
