Sunday 6th January marked the Feast of the Epiphany.
The word ‘epiphany’ is translated as a ‘moment of realisation’, and this religious holiday symbolises the moment the Wise Men first saw Jesus and recognised him as the Son of God.
As one of the oldest Christian feasts, this important celebration is steeped in tradition, with different customs practised across the world.
Here at Holy Cross Prep, we chose to celebrate this important moment on Monday 7th January, our first day back at school after the Christmas break. During assembly we learned all about the significance of this event by imagining the star that God put in the sky – the star that led the Wise Men to the baby Jesus.
