Celebrating the Feast of Theophany

The Feast of the Holy Theophany (Epiphany) of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ is celebrated each year on January 6. The Feast commemorates the Baptism of Christ and the divine revelation of the Holy Trinity. Jesus’ baptism was a defining moment. Immersed in the water of the Jordan, he embraced his vocation. In Jesus’ baptism we are brought into the very heart of two profound mysteries of our faith: firstly, the depth of Jesus’ identification with the human race and, secondly, a revelation of the triune God. The feast day of Theophany  was commemorated at the Assumption Parish with Children’s Liturgy and  the blessing of the waters at the end of the service. .  After the service, Fr. Ivan  blessed the school by sprinkling holy water in every room.  “We ask your blessing on these classrooms, that all who study, learn and teach here may grow in knowledge of you and of one another…”  he prayed aloud. Fr. Ivan’s visit was a wonderful way to begin the New Year at Assumption School! For more information about the ACS, you may contact us by phone at 732-826-8721.
