Epiphany is a Greek word that means to "reveal" or make manifest in a visible way. We celebrate the Great Feast of Epiphany where at the Baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ, He was revealed. This revelation of Jesus as God in the Flesh, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, is also joined with the voice of God the Father, and Holy Spirit in the form of the dove. Theophany means God is revealed to us, as the Holy Trinity in this wondrous event.
God continues to be revealed and to manifest Himself to us in the Holy Sacraments of the Church, beginning with Holy Baptism and regularly in the Holy Eucharist. The Blessing of water on this Feast is a way that God continues to renew us and His creation, by His Spirit working through the water. We bless ourselves and our homes with this Holy Water. All creation is meant to reflect the Glory of God, as He originally made it "very good" in Creation. We look forward to the Second Epiphany or Second Coming of Jesus in visible form at the end of time, to make all things new.
This class benefits all inquirers interested in Orthodox Christianity, those new to the faith or those wanting to revisit Orthodox foundations.
During these classes, weekly topics will help guide you and answer questions you may have. We reflect on the Gospels and hope to enhance your personal journey with Christ.

The mission of St. Luke Orthodox Christian Church is to be a beacon of Orthodox Christian spiritual life in Erie, eastern Boulder County, and the northern Denver metropolitan area. We strive together to live our Orthodox Christian Faith in a healthy way that forms Christian character, by participating regularly in the services, prayers, disciplines, and Sacraments of the Holy Orthodox Church. The community of St. Luke calls all people to Christ in His Church. We share the joy of Christ in our lives with those around us, educating people about the truth of this ancient faith in the Holy Trinity. We offer the love of Christ to those in need, in both word and action.
We welcome you to visit our parish to experience and learn about us. Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to its roots that go back to the churches established by the Apostles, in the Holy Land, Greece, and beyond. Our mother Church of Antioch was a major city mentioned in the Bible. The Orthodox Church humbly claims to be the same Church of Christ from those ancient times, the Church in all of the fullness that Christ established.
