Men of Epiphany to again aid track’s backside workers

The Men of Epiphany, the church group of men from the Church of the Epiphany will again lend their assistance to the Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy with a special dinner to be held on June 11.

The Race Track Chaplaincy helps more than 1,500 workers on the backside of Churchill Downs with food, clothing, education and life planning skills. Many of those workers are Spanish-speaking people with little or no local support.

The Men of Epiphany will minister to about 175 of those workers by serving dinner and joining in prayer, song, friendship and fun beginning at 7 p.m. June 11. Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz will be there to lend a hand, as will Father J. Randall Hubbard, pastor at Epiphany, 914 Old Harrods Creek Road.

Volunteers are need to help serve food, deliver supplies or just join in prayer. Those interested in helping should call Brayton Bowen at 558-2145 or Mike MLaughlin at 262-6032.

The Men of Epiphany will be providing the meal, paid for with donations from Epiphany members last July. No additional funding is needed now, however, donations of gently-used clothing, toiletries, towels, blankets and other household goods are needed and can be delivered to the back porch of Epiphany House by June 10. Please mark “Backside” on the items to be donated.
