Epiphany is an alive, spirit-filled community of 1,500 families who gather to celebrate God in our midst, to engage in life long formation and to serve others.
Our liturgies are enveloped in a feeling of warmth and hospitality. Epiphany’s commitment to liturgical excellence is evident in its superior music and proclamation of the Word.
Even though there is no school, Epiphany offers an outstanding Catholic education. Sunday classes and experiences provide all age levels an opportunity to grow in knowledge and spirituality.
Our unique worship space with its unfinished appearance and glass walls reminds us that our own journeys are unfinished and that the Gospel message requires us to focus outwards to participate in and impact the wider world.
Since the founding of our parish in 1971, Epiphany has been rooted in the vision of the Second Vatican Council. Each year we rededicate ourselves to our vision statement which is the cornerstone of our commitment to the world. Its text, seen below, circles the interior of our worship space as a constant reminder of our charge.

Epiphany's vision statement is the cornerstone of our commitment to the world. Its text circles the interior of our church as a constant reminder of our charge.
Animated by the Holy Spirit and rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, we are the Community of Epiphany on a pilgrimage of faith. In response to our baptismal call and sustained by prayer:
we choose to live the Gospel of Christ with humility and compassion,
we search for truth in a complex and changing world,
we experience the struggle and excitement of transformation through conversion,
we accept the responsibility of shared, collaborative ministry,
we embrace diversity and nurture the unique gifts of all.
Acknowledging our oneness with God and all creation, we respond to our baptismal call by proclaiming the good news that Jesus is Lord and that he is with us.
