I don’t have to tell you that this year has been one like no other! The coronavirus pandemic has changed everything, including the way we worship and gather as a community. But during times of trial such as these, Jesus Christ stands firm, and our Church’s mission to love God and our neighbor has become even more essential. Now more than ever, our parish is needed to help our communities move forward in faith, hope & healing, and we can’t do this important work without your support.
Scripture tells us that “God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress.” (Ps 46:1). As we face the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, we stand strong in faith knowing that Christ is with us. And yet there are so many who do not know the Good News of Jesus Christ! There is no better time to share the Gospel message with the world. With your help, our parish can continue to bring the faith we love to others.
The prophet Isaiah counsels, “They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength” (40:31). Our community has been through hardship, but we are a people of hope! By assisting those in need through our many outreach programs, we extend that hope to others. But the parish can’t do it alone. With your help, we can continue to bring the hope we need to others.
Jesus Christ is the prince of peace — the one who can calm the stormy seas. As his hands and feet, we are called to actively be Christ to one another as we embark upon a new ministry of healing within our communities. With your help, we can continue to bring the healing we crave to others.
With all of this in mind, I invite you to join our parish community by responding to our Faith, Hope & Healing Program. I ask that you please review this brochure and prayerfully consider how you and your family can help Epiphany Parish by financially supporting our ministries, furthering our mission, and reinforcing our future.
Thank you for your generosity, prayers, and commitment to Epiphany Parish!
