Revised Inclement Weather Policy

Since many schools are not having in-person classes, we cannot rely on school delays/cancellations for our inclement weather policy. Our new policy, effective immediately, is that if Lucas County is under any Snow Emergency Level (1, 2, or 3) that daily Mass (Monday-Friday) will be cancelled. Mass for Saturday vigil, Sunday morning, or Holy Days of Obligation are only cancelled in event of a Level 3 Emergency, per Diocesan policy. Please go to  lucascountyalerts.com if you wish to receive text messages when our county is under a Snow Emergency. Please stay safe and check the weather before venturing out unnecessarily! 


Dear Epiphany Family, 
Happy (Liturgical/Church) New Year! During this challenging time we have all been waiting for something new. A new Church year is always considered a Year of Grace. Every year, every day, every moment is an opportunity to experience God’s favor, life, love and presence. We wait for the coming of Jesus in a special way during this Advent season so he may come more fully into our lives, not only at Christmas but every day. Please join your parish family for these special opportunities of prayer and worship as often as you can so we can all better welcome Jesus into lives, parish, community and world. He is Emmanuel, “God is with us”, who brings us light and hope in the darkness, and breaks into the messiness of our world and lives, never leaving us. We look forward to seeing you as we encounter Him together. 

In Christ, Father Eric
