Epiphany

Epiphany

Epiphany is a season of four to nine weeks, from the Feast of the Epiphany (Jan. 6) through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The length of the season varies according to the date of Easter. The gospel stories of this season describe various events that manifest the divinity of Jesus. The coming of the Magi is celebrated on the Epiphany. The Baptism of our Lord is observed on the Sunday after Epiphany. The gospels for the other Sundays of the Epiphany season describe the wedding at Cana, the calling of the disciples, and various miracles and teachings of Jesus. The Last Sunday after the Epiphany is always devoted to the Transfiguration. Jesus' identity as the Son of God is dramatically revealed in the Transfiguration gospel, as well as the gospel of the baptism of Christ. We are called to respond to Christ in faith through the showings of his divinity recorded in the gospels of the Epiphany season.

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Join the Rev. Roy andmembers of St. Mark’s as we embark on a journey of faith.  Many people refer to the Holy Land as a 5th Gospel – a place where the people, places and events of the scriptures come to life. 

We travel during a time of the year when crowds are thinner and access to sites much richer.  Our pilgrimage includes a thoughtful journey to historical and religious sites, upscale 4-star hotels offering warm hospitality and delicious Mediterranean cuisine, and opportunities to meet with local Palestinian Christians to learn more about their lives, hopes and challenges. 

Time for daily prayer and reflection, as well as a service of Holy Eucharist, will be included. The pilgrimage is open to parishioners and members of the Diocese and their friends. Come join us!  The cost is $3700, complete with airfare from Charleston, SC.  A portion of each booking will go to support the ministries at St. Mark’s.

For more information, visit:  www.travelillume.com/trc/qhw or call 800-368-6757, extension 128.   Registration is due August 4th (accepted after August 4th on a space-available basis).

It comes from the Latin mandatum novum, "new commandment," from Jn 13:34-35 (A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples). Maundy Thursday also commemorates the institution of the eucharist by Jesus "on the night he was betrayed."
