Welcome back! We hope you had a relaxing and joyful Christmas break! Though we are back at school, we are still in Christmastide. The Epiphany of the Lord is one of the greatest feasts in the Church’s year, and in many parts of the world it is celebrated as the most joyful day of Christmastime. The word ‘epiphany’ means ‘showing’. We rejoice that the glory of God is shown to the whole world through the person of Jesus Christ. That glory is shown to the Magi who come from far away and followed the star to Bethlehem. The wise men are the first of many people who would seek Jesus and find him. For us, this feast is an opportunity to think about the gifts we’ve been given and how we use them to serve God. It’s also a chance to give thanks for all those who give so much to us every day.
