Epiphany claims to be a parish where faith is on the move, and it is literally true. For the 6th time in its long history Epiphany is moving to a new facility in May 2012. This commitment to be responsive to the leading of the Holy Spirit extends to all aspects of parish life - from the Church of the Epiphany Day School, to international partnerships, to local mission and ministry the parish takes seriously its mandate to be a light in the world. A full explanation of the parish’s ministries can be found on the parish website:


With unprecedented blessings come significant opportunities for Epiphany to reframe its life, mission, and ministry both parochially and internationally. The next 3 years are a time of intense change as the parish and day school move into a fully renovated and significantly larger facility and calls a permanent Rector. Epiphany is actively “scaling up” on all levels; mission, ministry, parish life, building, investments, and staff. Finding the right Associate Rector to partner with the Interim Rector during this time of wide-ranging change is critical to that objective.


Liturgical style & practice
The liturgy is generally low-broad supported by a 18-20 voice choir (4 paid section leaders). Three services on Sunday (8:30 Rite I, 10:30 and 5:30 Rite II) Evensong is presented 4-6 times a year. An additional service will be added beginning this fall on Wednesday at 5:00 pm. The liturgy is solidly based on the Book of Common Prayer and is Eucharistically centered.
