Pawling Ecumenical Epiphany Walk

Sunday, January 8, 2017 – 4:00pm to 8:00pm

A long-standing Pawling Tradition continues this Sunday, January 8 with The Pawling Ecumenical Epiphany Walk.

For Christians around the world, Christmas did not end on December 25th, but it had only just begun! In fact the, the Twelve Days of Christmas began on Christmas Day and continue through The Feast of the Epiphany on January 6th, also known as Little Christmas. Epiphany commemorates the arrival of the Magi, or Wisemen from the East, to adore the Christ Child and to present Him with gifts: Gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Members of Pawling’s Christian churches and others from our community will walk from church to church enjoying a sampling of how each congregation celebrates Christmas and Epiphany. This year’s walk will begin at 4:00pm at The Lutheran Church of Christ the King. Then, the walk continues to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church (4:30pm), Central Baptist Church (5:00pm), St. John’s Roman Catholic Church (5:30pm), Pawling United Methodist Church (6:00pm), and ends at Christ Church on Quaker Hill (6:30pm) where refreshments will be served following their service.

The Pawling Ecumenical Epiphany Walk is a unique and wonderful tradition that reflects the spirit of the season and our community. Come join us and celebrate God’s gift of Love at Christmas!
