Feast of Theophany commemorates Christ’s baptism in the River Jordan, and the beginning of Christ’s earthly ministry. At the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Trinity appeared clearly to mankind for the first time.  At the Baptism of Christ, all three Persons of the Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—were made manifest. Thus, the name of the Feast is Epiphany, meaning manifestation, or Theophany, meaning manifestation of God.
