Epiphany Feast, Jan. 5, 2014
By Chris Tan

         On January 5, 2014, approximately one hundred religious education students, their parents, and catechists led by Fr. Ettore Ferrario, Director of Religious Education, gathered in the Colonial Room to celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany. The assembly began with the recitation of the Angelus and the singing of two Epiphany songs, “We Three Kings” and “Campana Sobre Campana”.

        The children then displayed their creativity by dressing for and presenting a Nativity pageant featuring the visitation of the Magi.

       The event concluded with an inspiring talk by Fr. Roberto Amoruso and the promise of “goody bags” awaiting the children after Mass.
