The Feast of the Epiphany, one of the major festivals of the church year, falls on Sunday this year.  Epiphany, from the word meaning “revealing, or manifestation” is the day on which the infant King, Jesus, is revealed to the wise men from the East.  In many parts of the world, this is the great celebration connected with Christ’s birth—even more than Christmas.  Come join us for worship at 11:15 a.m. at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Montross.
