Holy water from Theophany: Holy Water is now available in a font located in front of the Solea by the Bishop's chair. Please bring a container as we distributed all of our water bottles.

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.
