Other Notes and Info

Did you know that tomorrow, January 6th, is Epiphany? Epiphany happens on the 12th day after Christmas and is a celebration of the Wise Men’s journey to see the Christ child. Since it is not on a Sunday (usually), we often don’t give it much attention, but it is a great opportunity to practice faith at home with your family. HERE is a wonderful, easy way to talk about and celebrate epiphany at home. Be sure to check out the ideas at the bottom of the article for younger children. Also, the activity incorporates “star words.” If you would like some additional words to choose from, you can find more HERE or HERE


Please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns!
