Epiphany Gathering

Every year on the Sunday when Epiphany is celebrated, Bishop Olivier invites parish leaders, sisters, brothers, and priests to a gathering. He gives a talk and updates on what is happening in the diocese, there are some performances, and then all are invited to eat together.

Always there are traditional dances associated with large gatherings.
This year the bishop gave bags of rice grown in church projects to each of the participants.
The sisters serving in Cambodia don’t get as much recognition as the priests but this year all the sisters present were invited to the stage to sing some Christmas carols for the assemblage. These are the Salesian Sisters (L) and the Missionaries of Charity, the two groups for which I have mass every week.
