Today is Epiphany, the Christian end point of the holiday season. Originally celebrated as the 12th day of Christmas, this is the day the Three Wise Men finally appeared before the new King Jesus and revealed their gifts for him. The word “Epiphany,” found in Greek, Latin, and French languages, is fittingly translated as “reveal.”
At St. Joseph Institute, we are the grateful recipient of so many gifts literally revealed to us daily, sometimes hourly! The gifts of our children as they learn new sounds reveal hope for their future. The gifts of our families who work hard to understand their new normal reveal dedication and love. Our Board Members give their time, money, and diverse expertise as they reveal their dedication to our mission and our future. The Sisters of St Joseph repeatedly entrust us to carry their mission forward, revealing hope, dedication, and faith. Countless volunteers and supporters who give of themselves reveal what we have observed for decades – our outcomes are nothing short of miraculous thanks to our community.
Today we thank you for the gifts you have revealed to St. Joseph Institute. Because of you, we move forward into a bright future filled with possibilities.
