After the Second Vatican Council, Fathers James Flynn and Richard Fowler, asked Archbishop Thomas J. McDonough to establish a faith community that would emphasize liturgy, social justice, lifelong formation and ecumenical cooperation with other faith communities. The Community of Epiphany celebrated their first liturgy on June 20, 1971, at St. Thomas Orphanage in Anchorage. The permanent worship center, designed by architect Larry Melillo, was formally dedicated on January 5, 1975, on land adjacent to the Burrwood property, former home to Archbishop Floersh.
The Community of Epiphany, a congregation with more than 3,300 parishioners, continues to grow. Each year on the Feast of Epiphany the members rededicate themselves to the following mission:
“Animated by the Holy Spirit and rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, we are the Community of Epiphany on a pilgrimage of faith. In response to our baptismal call and sustained by prayer:
• We choose to live the Gospel of Christ with humility and compassion.
• We embrace diversity and nurture the unique gifts of all.
• We search for truth in a complex and changing world.
• We experience the struggle and excitement of transformation through conversion.
• We accept the responsibility of shared, collaborative ministry.
• We celebrate our oneness with God and all creation.
• We strive to be a manifestation of God in our time.
