Our council will have our “Keep Christ in Christmas” entry in the Jaycee’s Christmas parade on Saturday, 12/3. We will be loading up the trailer on the west side of Epiphany between 8:30 and 8:45 AM and will then carpool to the start of the parade (Kinsley Junior High).
We will hand out tootsie rolls as we walk the parade route.
Following the parade, we will return to Epiphany and complete setting up the outdoor nativity scene. We are usually back from the parade around 11:15 and it takes about 45 minutes to complete the setup.
The below link includes a signup both activities.

Epiphany’s Knights of Columbus seek new or gently used coats (also jackets and hooded sweatshirts) for those in need as the weather turns cold.
You have three ways you can help:
- Bring coats to Mass on September 24-25 or October 1-2.
- Send coats with your Epiphany School kids the week of September 26-September 27. The class with the most coats collected will have a pizza party! Epiphany’s Knights of Columbus will collect and deliver the coats to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for distribution. We know from many stories that people truly cherish these sources of warmth and comfort!
- Help us collect coats before\after Masses and\or help with the delivery to St. Vincent de Paul on Monday, 10/4. Click here for details.
The party is for all parishioners and their guests.
Saturday, August 27th 4:30 PM to 7 PM.
The party will be held on the drive in front of Epiphany School.
The knights will provide the food, games, and live music by Andy Bordewick.
The menu will be hot dogs, chips, dessert, and beverage. All we ask is you bring your lawn chair.
There is no cost to attend but donations will be accepted.
