Los Tres Reyes y La Navidad

Coinciding with the observance of our Christmas Eve, is the Epiphany on the Gregorian Calendar. Among our local immigrant community, it is better known as el "Dia de Los Reyes."

Much like during the Christmastide in Ukraine, people hold public processions, dress as the Nativity characters and even carry aloft the Bethlehem Star.

Here is just a glimpse of the beautiful display of faith that we were able to be a part of today, after the Sunday Divine Liturgy.

Let's be grateful for the contributions of ALL of our immigrants now and in the past, to the society in which we are blessed to live.
