Epiphany Sunday 2024
In a momentous Epiphany mass at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Ndola, the Bishop of Ndola diocese, Rt. Rev. Dr. Benjamin Phiri JCD, guided the faithful in commemorating Epiphany Sunday. This Christian feast, observed on January 7th, celebrates the revelation of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, symbolized by the visit of the Magi bearing gifts.
During his homily, Bishop Phiri passionately warned the congregation to protect the divine gift of children entrusted to their care by God. Stressing the importance of family bonds, the bishop urged the faithful to value quality time together and emphasized the pivotal role of parents and guardians in guiding children.
Adding a unique touch to the Epiphany mass, the Holy Childhood commenced with a poetic explanation of Epiphany Sunday, later sung during the mass and took charge of readings and announcements. This innovative approach added a rich layer to the mass, engaging the congregation in a deeper connection with the significance of the day.
