Service of Remembrance 2019

Remembrance Day at Epiphany

The Orange Owls from a nearby daycare made their annual pilgrimage to the Manor and Highland Park Cenotaph. It was a heartwarming experience for the remembrance committee secretary and chairman to interact with these innocent, beautiful 2 and 3 year olds and their teacher Julie. Once again the Orange Owls have touched us by leaving some Remembrance Day art work now on display in the Church.

 

Jeremy Smith at Epiphany

Well, the concert is over and it was great. Jeremy Smith not only sings like John Denver, he looks like John Denver. For all you John Denver fans out there not attending today, you missed a great show. Stay tuned though. We may have him back.

An Old Time Variety Show

of Song, Story, Antics

Hosted by Adam Corrigan Holowitz

Music by Stephen Holowitz

Featuring: Katy Clark, Paul Grambo, Kydra Ryan –

Guest appearances by our Epiphany poets Ron and Jan

Adam writes:

The warmth of a kitchen party mixed with the fun of an old time variety show in the heart of the neighborhood of Manor Park. The night will feature a brand new story from Manor Park, a great assortment of music performed by Stephen Holowitz on piano and vocalists Paul Grambo and Katy Clark. Plus another instalment of Lucky Thinnorth, checking in on where the Volgaborg is, the By the Pound Give Away and many more delights that the writers are busily coming up with!

And it was true! What a night! An amazing show of music and comedy. Songs and stories – Stories about The Coves own Ogo Pogo, the adventures of Lucky Thinnorth, and a Manor Park couple’s amazing and exciting adventure at a modern Farm style marriage ceremony. And of course where would we be without an update on the Volgaborg. I’m a bit reluctant to talk about this, but I really enjoyed the three sketches about Alvin the Clumsy Tailor.

The music was great! Paul Grambo with his amazing baritone voice  was not to be undone by Katy Clark’s beautiful soprano tones, and the two of them together in “Lets Call the Whole Thing Off was breathtaking.

The sketches by Adam, Kydra, Paul and Katy were beyond humorous. Actually they were downright belly aching funny.

Thank you Adam, Stephen, Paul S, Paul G, Kydra, and Katy for another wonderful evening.

For those of you who missed the show this year, you can listen to a rebroadcast Sunday (Jun 16) midnight on Radio Western CHRW 94.9 on the FM dial. Here’s a few photos of the show.

 On Friday May 17 a service of remembrance was held at  the Church of the Epiphany. Our little church was full to the rafters with friends, relatives and co-workers. Rev Teresa led us through a beautiful memorial much appreciated by all. It was a very appropriate and proper send off for our friend Lisa.

NEW YEAR’S EVE 2018

Quilt Raffle Winner

The winner of this years Quilt was Bruce Jackson. Bruce says he’s always cold when he gets to the church on Sunday Mornings, so he will leave the quilt here. He will use it to warm up before the service.

 

 

Joe Bowman

Joe Bowman was a long time parishioner at the Church of the Epiphany. He was known in the area as the Mayor of Manor Park. He owned a Variety Store on the corner of Wharncliffe Rd and Emery St. Joe was a very generous man. If someone needed food, but couldn’t afford to pay just then – no problem. Joe would give him what he needed. In reality Joe was the first food bank in the area, long before our church food bank. Joe was also a decorated war veteran. He was instrumental in forming the Manor and Highland Park War Restoration Committee when the cenotaph was vandalized beyond repair and had to be replaced. Back in 2011 Adam, Teresa’s son Adam interviewed Joe for a school project. Here is an audio file of that interview.
