The 6th January is the Feast of the Epiphany, marking the visit of the Magi to the house of the Holy Family. And so on Sunday we will remember the journey of the Three Kings to Bethlehem.

At the end of mass, chalk will be blessed so that you can mark your own homes as holy for the coming year. Click here to read more about this tradition. We will continue our celebrations at S.Paul’s with an Epiphany bring-&-share lunch from 12pm, All Welcome!
