Pastoral Letter to Members of The Church of the Epiphany
We simply cannot remain silent. What is happening to the children on the Texas border is a clear breach of our baptismal vow to respect the dignity of every human being. Read the letter here>>

You Are Invited Blog: The Stewardship Committee gathered the “You Are Invited” newsletter articles, added additional articles and – starting in May – interviews will all the “stewards” of Epiphany. Please visit youareinvited.info, take a moment to read the articles and add your comments.

Theological Journal: This fall the clergy and staff are writing about prayer as personal piety. Every two weeks, a new entry from a staff member, clergy and/or auxiliary clergy will post.
