During Epiphany we remember Jesus’ ministry. Jesus called disciples. Some of Jesus’ disciples were fishermen. This Sunday, January 21, at the Children’s Table you are invited to decorate a fish to help you remember that we are all disciples and that we are called to share the good news of Jesus with others.
