Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held each Monday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. This holy time is in answer to the question that Jesus asked his Apostles: "Can you watch one hour with me?" All are urged to say "YES" and to spend as much time as they can.

Emmaus Men’s Group
The Emmaus Men's Group of Epiphany is a ministry for today's Catholic man. It is a Catholic Men's Fellowship Group that exists to serve and bring together men to strengthen their faith.

This ministry offers today's men a parallel opportunity to rediscover Christ's presence in their lives, gain fresh understanding of God's transforming grace, and form friendships which foster faith that support spiritual maturity. While Emmaus provides a pathway to God’s love, it also supports man’s return to the world, in the power of the Spirit, to share the love they have received with a hurtful and hurting world.
The group meets on the second Saturday of each month from 9AM to 11AM. For more information please contact the Parish Office.
