  • Having listened with open minds and hearts, Having heard the desire for connectedness, And in keeping with the Epiphany Vision Statement, We, the Parish Pastoral Council, offer the Community of Epiphany the following action plans as we renew our continuing faith journey together: Through these ever-changing times, we desire to connect more deeply with our God through relationships with one another and our world, in turn, creating a stronger faith within ourselves. While remaining committed to social responsibility, liturgical excellence, and our Roman Catholic faith; and recognizing that all our new efforts flow from the ongoing work and inspiration of the Holy Spirit already stirring among us in many worthwhile endeavors, we propose these five action steps to our community. Before we begin, let us proclaim our vision together as a community.
