The parish community of Epiphany Catholic Church joyfully welcomes Fr. Ryan Saunders as its new Parochial Vicar!
Father Saunders’ assignment at Epiphany will begin on July 7.
Father Saunders was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, the youngest of three brothers (both of his siblings are deceased). He graduated from St. Anthony School and Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale and obtained a bachelor's degree in political science with a minor in public relations from Barry University in Miami Shores. After college, he worked for five years as assistant director in the archdiocesan Office of Worship and director of liturgy at St. Mary Cathedral . He then entered the political world, becoming chief of staff to Chip LaMarca, then a Broward County commissioner, while consulting and advising on other local, statewide and national campaigns. He entered St. John Vianney Seminary in 2013 and completed his formation at St. Vincent de Paul Seminary. His pastoral assignments have included summers at the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea in Key West and St. Timothy in Miami; a pastoral year at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Doral; and a diaconate year at St. Bernadette Parish in Hollywood.

Beyond the Grave: An Easter Reflection by Rich Donnelly
Glorious Archangel St. Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners. I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the “medicine of God” I humbly pray you heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body. I especially ask of you the favor (here mention your special intention), and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
