The Hymn for Epiphany:

When You were baptised in the Jordan, O Lord, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest, for the voice of the Father bore witness to You, calling You His beloved Son.

And the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the certainty of the Word.

O Christ our God, Who has appeared and has enlightened the world, glory be to You.

Announcement from St Andrews Theological College regarding the vocation of priesthood. We are privileged in Sydney to have the Theological College here in Sydney. We wish to encourage young people to study Theology to become Priests and Teachers. We have a real mission here not to be caught up in materialism, Technology and Syncretism in today’s society. Dedication to God and to service to our fellow human beings breaks these barriers.

To find out about subscribing to the college's journal (Phronema) and also the latest upcoming events, particularly in terms of attending guest lectures, courses and symposia, please visit the St Andrews Theological College website.
