Parish Announcements
New Parking Validation Machine
The PMI garage has changed their system for validating parking tickets and we have recently installed a new validation machine in Community Hall. Instead of stamping your parking ticket, this machine will scan the bar code located on your ticket and validate electronically. All you have to do is hold the bar code under the scan machine. The new machine is located on the same table in Community Hall, adjacent to the Sacristy. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Administrator, Catherine Manhardt at

Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic
February 12, 2017 at 7:00pm

The Philharmonic teams with acclaimed pianist Thomas Pandolfi to showcase Ignacy Jan Paderewski's eloquent concerto. The concerto charms with its intriguing pictorials, undulating Romanza, and its brilliant Allegro that recalls the Polish highlands. Closing out the program, Duke Ellington's tone poem is a musical allegory that traces the river from its spring source to its end in the sea, paralleling the cycle of life from birth to death. Wonderfully melodic, and flowing constantly like a river, the suite incorporates folk songs, jazz, and spiritual and blues elements. Tickets

Service in Mission & MinistryService

How might you become more involved in the mission and ministry of our parish? There is so much going on at Epiphany and we are so grateful for the contributions you all offer towards making this happen. There are a few areas where we could really use your help! Please have a look at the list below and think where you might feel you could benefit from and contribute to the life of our community. 
The Welcome Table team are looking for more volunteers to help in the kitchen and dining room. Please contact Maria Hunter if you are interested in getting involved in this important aspect of our ministry at Epiphany (
Coffee Hour after the 11am service. Pat Pickering and John McDermott do a fantastic job, but they can't do it every week. Coffee Hour can be as simple or as elaborate as we want to make it. What's important is that we have a time of fellowship after worship.  Please contact Catriona if you can help (

Liturgical Leaders: We are always looking for people to help with the important ministries that make our Sunday worship possible. We welcome new additions to the ranks of greeters, ushers, readers, lay Eucharistic ministers, as well as the flower guild, and altar guild. If you are interested in learning more about any of these roles, please contact Catriona (
Office Volunteers: We are looking for volunteers to sit at the front desk between 10am-2pm on weekdays. Bertha does a great job on Tuesdays and we're looking for others to help throughout the week.

Pastoral Care
