The holiday marks the biblical adoration of baby Jesus by the three Kings, also referred to as three Wise Men or Magi. According to the Gospel of Matthew, the men found the divine child by following a star across the desert for twelve days to Bethlehem. Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar — representing Europe, Arabia, and Africa respectively — travelled by horse, camel, and elephant in order to present baby Jesus with three symbolic gifts.
Three Kings Day also celebrates the diversity of Latin culture through food, art, dance, music and history. It is a very special time to be with family and friends. Come celebrate the rich cultural and religious traditions of the season.
Specials thanks goes to our student volunteers from Benedict College and the generous donations of gifts and essential items from Catawba Trail Elementary School in Elgin.
