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. At the Baptism of Christ, all three Persons of the Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—were made manifest. Thus, the name of the Feast is Epiphany, meaning manifestation, or Theophany, meaning manifestation of God. On Wednesday, January 6th, 2016, the staff and students of ACS celebrated Epiphany with  the blessing of the waters service conducted after the Liturgy. After the blessing of the water service, Fr. Ivan  walked around the school with a small group of students and blessed the school’s classrooms and students with holy water and in his prayers asked  God to have mercy on the school to rid it of every evil and to fill if with every blessing.  Fr. Ivan’s visit was a wonderful way to begin the New Year!
