Church of the Epiphany’s Response to the Call for Fasting and Prayer
“We must pray fervently for all victims of sexual abuse and misconduct. We must pray for the spiritual renewal of our episcopal leadership. We must commit ourselves to the full and active participation in the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
We must take every opportunity to practice acts of charity, to be the visible sign and witness of Christ’s love for our sisters and brothers who are poor, vulnerable and at the peripheries of our communities. Only in this way can we rebuild people’s trust in the spiritual and charitable life of the Church.”
from Tragedy to Hope by Bishop Barry Knestout (Click HERE to read "From Tragedy to Hope.")
We encourage everyone to participate as a faith community by:
- Continue having Eucharistic Adoration on Fridays, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm.
- Fasting on Fridays through the end of the year.
- A special intention for those affected by abuse at Friday morning Mass, 7:30 am, through the end of the year.
- The Divine Mercy Chaplet prayed in the last hour of Eucharistic Adoration, 6:00 pm, through the end of the year.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
