Looking ahead to

July…it’s time for a

ballgame!

On Sunday, July 16, we invite parishioners from Trinity and Christ Churches to join us to see the New Hampshire Fisher Cats play the Portland Sea Dogs in Manchester.  The carpool for the game will leave the Christ Church parking lot at 11:45 a.m. Those who wish to drive on their own may do so. At 1:30 p.m., the actual game begins – and it will be “Episcopal Day” all the way around at Delta Dental Stadium as the Christ Church, Exeter, choir sings the National Anthem! The cost of a ticket (great box seat behind third base) is $9.00 per person. You will also want to bring money to assist your carload with parking costs ($10/car) and, of course, to enjoy the concession stands at the park. Tickets will go on sale in mid-June.

Music director Alexis Zaricki opening one of her cards as we celebrate her 22-year ministry with us.

Saying “thank you” to a gifted musician

and friend

In my 35 years as a parish priest I have had the privilege of working with many organists. Each has enriched the ministry of the congregation (in our case, congregations) he or she has served – and all have touched my life in ways that have been hugely gratifying. But, in my book, Alexis Zaricki has been among the best. She is not only a skilled pianist and organist and a patient choir director, she is liturgically knowledgeable, with a knack for choosing appropriate music for our services, and, with her agreeable personality and extraordinary musical gifts, a delight to work with. After an amazing 22 years of serving as organist for Christ Church, and five years extending that ministry to Trinity as well, she has earned every word of appreciation that I know will be spoken this Sunday as she brings her ministry among us to a close, and every expression of love that will go along with the gifts we will be presenting her. The great Martin Luther once said, “Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through music.” In that spirit, I say “thank you” and “bless you” to a musician I hold in the highest esteem. Godspeed, Alexis, as you at last get to spend more time with Nick and the family – and continue offering your gifts in new ways as this next chapter in your life unfolds. Fr. Chip
