A lively group of community members over age 55 and over. They lead exciting personal lives, and this carries over into their monthly meetings, social activities and excursions. They also provide a “prayer chain” for special needs.

Deb will share her personal experiences about those things that need to be addressed before the “unexpected” arises. Your “bucket list” should include things like “In an emergency, who knows where to find my important documents? Who will look after my pet? Where are my house keys?” and so much more.

What: Sages Day Of Reflection When: October 19, 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM Where: The Lighthouse Presenter: Deacon Lucio Caruso
A Sages Day Of Reflection will be held on Saturday, October 19, from 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM at the Lighthouse. Deacon Lucio Caruso will present "The Gift of Years: Eldering Gracefully!", covering such topics as

More than 40 “Sages and friends” left the Epiphany parking lot on Monday, June 10, for a five day excursion to Chicago. We left on a brand new Mercedes bus, cruising up I-65 for the Windy City. Our cruising ended abruptly with an electronic malfunction north of Indy, to be resumed more than three hours later on another bus. While somewhat of a setback, we made it to Chicago in time for a wonderful dinner at the Village Tavern and Grill in Schaumburg, Illinois, where we also would be staying while visiting downtown Chicago.
It was a cool and rainy day when Epiphany’s Sages, “like a band of gypsies goin’ down the highway,” set out on yet another major adventure – this time to San Antonio, Texas. As usual, camaraderie abounded – lots of chatter, laughter, games, movies, magazine and newspaper sharing to break any possible monotony (like we’d ever let THAT happen). Primarily, our six “first-timers” and 41 “seasoned” travelers were looking forward to the sun, warmth, and excitement of the Lone Star State!
Our first overnight stop (in Southaven, MS) afforded us an opportunity to attend Saturday evening Mass at Christ the King Church, still adorned for the Easter season, and to witness a young Hispanic girl’s Quinceanera, or “coming of age”. What a moving experience!
A hale and hearty group of Epiphany Sages set out for yet another life experience – north to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. While Louisvillians were enjoying just the beginning of what would become a record-breaking hot summer, we motored into typical Northern Michigan late Spring weather – breezy, cloudy, cool, and occasionally drizzly, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of this adventurous group!
Our first and most inspirational experience was the National Shrine of “The Cross in the Woods” – absolutely amazing – standing 55 feet high by 22 feet across, made from one Oregon Redwood tree, with a bronze corpus weighing seven TONS, measuring 28 feet high by 21 feet wide. It’s the focal point of a grounds containing a huge church, outdoor chapel, wooded pathways through the Stations of the Cross, and assorted hand-sculpted statuary. Located in Indian River, MI, you can click here and see for yourself these outstanding pieces of artistic sculpture.
“A Lonely Life Ends on Elvis Presley Boulevard”
By Bobbe Moutray
…front page headline of the Memphis Press Scimitar on Wednesday, August 17, 1977. I know this. I lived not ten minutes away from “the house” as locals referred to Graceland, home of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Fast forward: Monday, April 19, 2010, a cool and overcast day didn’t deter a hale and hearty group of Sages and friends (mostly Elvis fans) from embarking on a whirlwind trip to Tunica, MS - casino capitol of the south –including tours of Memphis, Graceland and the burial site of the Presley family, St. Jude Children’s Hospital – where we delivered Healing Blankets on behalf of the Epiphany Community – Martin Luther King Memorial at Larraine Motel, Beale Street, home of the Blues, Smithsonian Rock ‘N’ Soul museum, and Tunica Museum, where we learned firsthand what life was like long before casinos arrived, and much more!!
