Montgomery Catholic Celebrates the Epiphany of the Lord in Tremendous Ways

The Montgomery Catholic Holy Spirit and St. Bede campuses celebrated the feast of the Epiphany of the Lord on Friday, January 5 with an assortment of fun and educational activities.

The feast of the Epiphany of the Lord marks the arrival of the Magi, commonly known as the three wise men, to the place where Jesus was born in Bethlehem. These Magi delivered three gifts: gold to symbolize Jesus’ kingship, frankincense to symbolize prayer, and myrrh to foreshadow Jesus’ death on the cross.

One of these three wise men, MCPS President Justin Castanza, made it a memorable time for our students by bringing his friendly animals, featuring a camel, donkeys, sheep, and goats. Students spent their energy on an obstacle course bounce house, traveled back in time to taste old-time delicacies and smell frankincense and myrrh, became kings and queens with arts and crafts crowns, and celebrated our Knights Football team winning the Class 4A State Championship by taking photos with the championship trophy.
