    Black umbrella strollerIn the past few weeks, around 150 migrant families from Haiti and Central America have been placed in a few hotels in Woburn, MA. It is estimated that there are 75 kids under the age of five and many along the way. Families have been asking for “Umbrella strollers” which are lightweight, foldable strollers, that they can store in the hotel rooms. This is a tangible way to welcome our new neighbors!

    Epiphany will collect gently used umbrella-style strollers or you can purchase these strollers and have them shipped directly to Woburn. If bringing in a stroller, drop-off is in the Genesis room in the basement. *Note that it is very important that the stroller is an Umbrella stroller, and is small, foldable, and lightweight. We cannot accept strollers that do not meet this criteria. If unsure, ask Rev. Janelle

    These are examples of appropriate and affordable options to purchase new strollers:

    Here is an Amazon link

    Here is a Walmart link

    Please ship new strollers directly to United Methodist Church, 523 Main Street, Woburn 01801.

    Aerial photo of Parish of the Epiphany in Winchester, MAMatthew in his gospel reminds us that a house built with strong and durable materials will be able to stand firmly against howling winds and rising streams, Matthew 7:24-27. Our sturdy church has physically withstood such forces for 120 years, but not without some wounds. Our sanctuary awaits major repairs, some as basic as stopping rainwater from dripping inside! And our program and outreach missions can also benefit from improved and stronger foundations. 

    As some may have heard, the vestry has voted to begin work on a capital campaign, expected to be launched this fall. Work is underway to discern what such a campaign can and should include. The rewards of a campaign can fund important repairs to our campus and can also address important and long-term spiritual programs and mission interests, perhaps through an expanded endowment. Expanding the endowment has the promise of helping to create a durable house, both physically and spiritually, long into the future. There will be opportunities for input, feedback, and direction as we move forward. 

    Suzanne Owayda, James Wagner, and Ellen Wilson have answered the call to lead the charge, followed by an enthusiastic group of committee members: The Reverend Nick Myers, Jonathan Foot, Bruce Glabe, Ted Kellogg, Eileen Marks, and Warren McFarlan. Community Counseling Service (CCS), a professional firm that has led many campaigns in the diocese, has been hired to assist us. 

    Please keep the Capital Campaign Committee in your prayers and stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

    Yours in Christ,
    Your Vestry and The Capital Campaign Committee

    Team Epiphany bicyclists participating in ALS-Therapy Development Institute charity rideA couple of Sundays ago, I was talking to the daughter of a beloved parishioner who died of ALS. She reminded me that it had been eighteen years since he had passed. Eighteen years! I won’t bore you with tired aphorisms about time flying, but man, did that surprise me. It was only a few years later that we found the Tri-State Trek and started to raise money to combat ALS. So, we’ve been doing this a long time now.

    Through that long stretch, despite the tremendous support we’ve received from the parish, and the many thousands of dollars we have raised, we’ve continued to have to report that ALS remains a horrible disease stubbornly resistant to cures and treatments. But we are happy to report that this year is different. ALS-Therapy Development Institute has announced a new drug, Tofersen, has successfully completed FDA approval and significantly slows the decline of respiratory function and strength and improves quality of life. More clinical trials are underway, so it seems a pipeline of hope is on the way.

    But no reason for complacency! That’s why your favorite cycling group, Team Epiphany, is at it again. We’re hopping on our trusty two-wheelers to continue the fight against this horrible disease benefiting the ALS-TDI. They’ve changed the format this year, and we’ll be attempting various distances. During the weekend of June 24-25, your team will be looping around Durham, NH, completing distances between 30 and 200 miles. And so, once again, we ask for your support:

    1. Please navigate to and make a pledge. We hope to break our record on fundraising. It will also show you who’s on the team and what they’ve signed up for. Sponsor your favorite rider or the team at large. It’s all good!
    2. You could join the team. No, I’m not kidding. There are many ways to participate, both in person and virtually. We’d love to swell our ranks — a cyclist? Doesn’t matter, you can participate virtually walking, running, or doing any kind of exercise.
    3. Pray for us. We will be training heavily between now and then. We’d especially like your prayers for the safety of all riders and volunteers on the weekend of June 24-25.

    ALS has hit this parish hard over the years, and we ride in honor of our fallen friends, Steve Lewis and Rick Marks. Yet, we know there are lots of pressing needs in the world so we thank you in advance for considering supporting us.

    In the meantime, stay safe and well and have a blessed Eastertide.

    ~ Team Epiphany
