Today is the Epiphany.  This is a very important day to Catholics.  


This is because today is also known as Three Kings' Day - is a Christian festival, which starts on 6 January. It is a special date in the Christmas story as it's when we celebrate how a star led the  the Three kings or the Wise Men - to visit the baby Jesus after he had been born.


'Epiphany' comes from the Greek word meaning 'to reveal', as it is when the baby Jesus was 'revealed' to the world. This is why as you grow older you might hear people say they've had an epiphany, when they've just realised something.


  1. Please see below for a liturgy focussing on the Epiphany. Please  reverently join in and listen to this then complete the activity.  After, use a card and string to make a present for Jesus.  Make sure your paper is a square.  Tie your string around the card in quarters.  On small pieces of paper, write what gives you would like to give to Jesus.  When you have finished writing your gifts, glue them on the back of your present. Here is an example of what your gift design could look like.

  2. Spend some quiet time reflecting on all the learning that we have done during Advent - Angel Gabriel visiting Mary, Mary visiting Elizabeth, Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem and Jesus being born.  Say a prayer thanking God for giving us His Son then complete the respond booklet attached below.  Please not that I have filled in some sections already. Only answer the questions with no answers.
