Community Ministry

"On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding." John 2

Epiphany Parish's Community Ministries provide volunteer opportunities through which members and friends foster a fun, welcoming atmosphere for fellow parishioners, the Catholic community, and the local community.

Advanced Youth & YAH

For parish seniors, a parish centered and town-wide group offers camaraderie and opportunities for dinners and outings. Epiphany Advanced Youth is a parish seniors (55+) group that meets for a potluck meal most third Thursdays. Entertainment is provided by Epiphany Grade School children; periodically visitors present on seniors related topics. For information, contact the parish office at (309) 452-2585 or the coordinator, Maggie Veselack.

YAH or "Young at Heart" is a group of Twin City seniors who meet periodically to socialize, and organize and participate in road trips. For more information on how you can pitch in or be part of this group contact Ed and Marolyn Anderson at (309) 452-2585.

Auction (School)

Usually on a Saturday evening April, the Epiphany School Club hosts a "basket-auction" to raise funds for the school. Parishioners and other friends of the school help make this a social "high point" of the Spring. Many volunteers are needed to help prepare for and host the event. For contact information, visit their website or call Epiphany School at (309) 452-3268.

Carnival

Epiphany's Carnival falls on the Thursday-Saturday before Father's Day (3rd Sunday in June). Literally hundreds of parish volunteers and friends of the parish help make this a safe, fun-filled time for the parish and community. Please see the Carnival Web site for information about the event, or contact the coordinators Joe or Lois Morrow at Carnival Email.

Christmas Celebrations

At the beginning of Advent, Epiphany Parish gears up for its Annual Live Nativity and Family Christmas Program. Volunteers help erect our cedar "stable" where farm animals (including camels) and parishioners in costume welcome Christmas Eve guests. During our first two Christmas Eve Masses our focus is on parish children who have an opportunity to participate in an impromptu nativity pageant, called "Instant Christmas." Volunteers are needed to help make both these events important celebrations and memories for parish families. Contact Parish Office Email for information on the Live Nativity (contact person Carolyn Wills) or Instant Christmas (contact person Kathleen Phillips).

EDE (Epiphany Domus Ecclesia)

Beginning January 2010, Monsignor Powell started a group at the rectory for a monthly rosary and dinner--creating a "home-church" in the rectory, to benefit him and the several families who are joining him in launching the endeavor. Hopefully this will blossom into a meaningful ministry throughout the parish bringing singles and families together to help foster devotion in the home, family unity and spiritual fervor. By means of prayer and meal fellowship the EDE goal is to live "brotherly love" and to relieve the strains posed by modern secular culture. For more information on the EDE idea, contact Monsignor Powell.

During the summer, we would like to revive several House Church Masses and Progressive Dinners. Following the same spirit of the EDE, but as a one time event, a family would host parishioner neighbors and friends for Mass before walking about to various households for the dinner courses. Families interested in hosting a summer House Church event in June, July or August, should contact Msgr. Powell.

Fellowship Sunday

Fellowship Sunday is our annual parish celebration on the last August Sunday before Labor Day weekend. We reduce the number of Masses and focus on a parish celebration of unity and community. The goal is to see and experience the length and breadth of Epiphany Parish, and remind ourselves once a year that we are not an aggregate of Mass "crowds" but one vibrant community. Information about Fellowship Sunday is disseminated after the Parish Carnival (mid-June). For more information contact Msgr. Powell through Parish Office Email.

Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is the principle fund-raiser for our High School Youth Ministry program, Life Teen. Held on the Second Saturday in October, German beer, food, and music fill our outdoor tent. High School students setup, serve and clean up to help with the endeavor and garner service hours. If you are interested in underwriting or helping with Oktoberfest, please contact Phil Rossi through Parish Office Email.

Welcome Committee

Everyone wants to feel welcomed, loved and supported in a Christian community. To help foster a welcoming spirit, the Welcome Committee was formed in January 2010. It helps the pastor introduce himself and parish ministries to newcomers and put them at ease in a family-style dinner event. Held periodically, the Welcome Dinner is open to new families to Epiphany Parish and held, depending on numbers, at the rectory or in the Parish Hall. If you would like to help, contact our Welcome Committee, coordinated by Lisa Feeney and Sandy Holcomb.

Young Adults

The period after high school or college, depending on the career path chosen, can be spiritually challenging for men and women today. Currently a coordinator for this important ministry is needed. Please contact the pastor Msgr. Powell. A resource for single Catholics called to the married vocation is Catholic Match.com.
