Epiphany Action Plan

  1. 2. Vision of Epiphany Animated by the Holy Spirit and rooted In the Roman Catholic Tradition, We are the Community of Epiphany on a pilgrimage of faith. In response to our baptismal call and sustained by prayer: We choose to live the Gospel of Christ with humility and compassion. We search for truth in a complex and changing world. We experience the struggle and excitement of transformation through conversion. We accept the responsibility of shared collaborative ministry. We embrace diversity and nurture the unique gifts of all. Believing in a society free from oppression, we heal, reconcile, and work for justice and peace. Celebrating our oneness with God and all of creation, We are Epiphany, A manifestation of God in our times.
