Bishop Hirschfeld to visit

Christ Church on Feb. 24th

We look forward to welcoming Bishop +Rob for his biennial visitation to Christ Church. This will be an opportunity for baptisms, confirmations, receptions into the Episcopal Church and reaffirmations of faith. If you are interested in any of those Sacraments, speak with Fr. Chip right away – and plan on joining our Inquirers’ Class (see below).

Any interest in an Inquirers’ class at

Christ Church?

Last fall, in preparation for Bishop Hirschfeld’s visit to Trinity Church, we offered an Inquirers’ Course for folks who are either new to the Episcopal Church or would like to learn more about it. While several from Trinity came last fall, we had no takers from Christ Church. I would love to offer a class this Feb. at Christ Church if there is interest. If you would like to learn more about the Episcopal Church over the course of six weeks (Sundays after the liturgy), please be in touch with me by Sunday, Jan. 27. - Fr. Chip
Christmas Altar at Christ Church With the Christ Church Nave under construction, this year’s service was held in the chancel. The Altar Guild did a wonderful job of making that space attractive and festive for the occasion.
