Sydney Epiphany celebration and Holy Cross dive to take place at Yarra Bay


It was announced that on Sunday, January 12, 2020, the Epiphany celebration and Holy Cross dive will take place, with all Sydney Parishes participating, at Yarra Bay Bicentennial Park.

During this year’s celebration, the thought will be focused on the victims of the devastating fires raging across Australia. For this reason, the established event that will take place after the water cleanse will also be of a charitable nature.
