25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Epiphany Family,I am writing this short article on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. I am sure we all have our own vivid memories of that day. I had recently moved back home with my parents and had begun a new full-time job after graduate school. I first heard about the attacks in a cubicle […]

Labor Day: 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Dear Epiphany Family, Happy Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary! It is not often that we are able to celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on a Sunday.

11th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Epiphany Family,I write on the eve of the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or Corpus Christi.

Most Holy Trinity

Dear Epiphany Family,  I write on the beautiful Solemnity of Pentecost and this article appears here for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, two awesome feasts which draw us closer to God, Who is love, unity, and a union and communion of Persons.

Come Holy Spirit, and renew […]
