Dear Friends,

(insert) Thank Yous .......................... p. 4 June Highlights ................. back

As has been the tradition at Christ Church, we end our program year with a bang. June 4 will be a grand Pentecost celebration and birthday party for the Church, and will include a presentation about our Christian Formation program. June 11 is Recognition Sunday, featuring a beautiful piece of music by John Rutter that involves all of our choirs. June 11 is also the Parish Picnic hosted by the Behrens Family. On June 18 the Church School combines for a Jeopardy Challenge covering knowledge of the early Church, world religions and the Old and New Testaments. The first three weeks of June will be filled with the joy and excitement that represents so clearly our life together here at Christ Church – our weekly celebration in thanksgiving for all that God does for us and through us. After June 18 our schedule changes as we settle into the rhythm of the summer months. Starting June 25 we will have one service on Sunday morning at 9:00AM, and one service Sunday evening at 5:00PM. The 9:00AM service will alternate between Rite I (traditional language) and Rite II (modern usage) and is a great way for us to experience the best of both worlds. There will of course be service music and hymns.

The 5:00PM service will alternate between said Evening Prayer with homily and said Holy Eucharist. A schedule for that will be published by mid-June. The 5:00PM service will be held downstairs in the Chapel of the Guardian Angels. Our mid-week liturgies during the summer remain as they have always been. Wednesday mornings at 7:00AM there is Morning Prayer in the Chapel of the Guardian Angels. Thursday mornings at 11:00AM there is Holy Eucharist Rite I with healing, also in the Chapel of the Guardian Angels. Those of you who have experienced the heat of Christ Church in July and August understand why we move so many of our liturgies downstairs to the air-conditioned Chapel of the Guardian Angels! The heat is also one of the reasons for moving the Sunday morning service earlier to 9:00 AM. Although many of us take vacation or change our routines in the summer, the life-giving discipline of worship and celebration continues at Christ Church. Please join us when you are home and keep worship and community as part of summer’s restorative process. May Almighty God bless us all in our rest and in our work, at home and away. Faithfully,

Mission Trip to Malawi

Center for Spiritual Growth

Mission Trip To Malawi: One of our parishioners and outreach committee members, Dr. Etta Eskridge will be traveling to Malawi this summer for volunteer work in areas surrounding the central capital Lilongwe. The Outreach committee is asking for donations of medicines and toiletries for Dr. Eskridge to bring with her for distribution at the hospitals and clinics she will be working in. Etta will be traveling with Dr. Don Thomas, his wife Mary and members of All Saints Church in Pasedena who are going for the first time to Malawi to volunteer their services as doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners. Some of the items the group is looking for are over the counter medicines for both children and adults such as pain medicines, skin treatments (steroid and antifungals) and other items such as gauze, bandaids, toothpaste and toothbrushes. All of these simple items are in very short supply in Malawi and must be hand carried over in order to avoid diversion. If you can collect some of these items, please bring them to the narthex or the church office during the month of June and they will be distributed by Dr. Eskridge during her two weeks in Malawi in July. Thanks for all your help and any monetary contributions you can afford to support our project with GAIA, Dzama Village. If you wish to contribute a check, make it out to Christ Church and put GAIA on the memo.

Dr. Pamela Tudor-Craig, Lady Wedgwood

Nursery Located on the third floor of the Child Center, this resource is staffed by two loving and caring professionals from 9:45 A.M. to noon each Sunday so that parents can take full advantage of the Adult Forum after the 10:00 A.M. service. Parents are also welcome and encouraged as extra volunteers.

Mark the dates! Sept. 30 and Oct.1stThe Center for Spiritual Growth will host the visit of Dr. Pamela Tudor-Craig, Lady Wedgwood, to Christ Church this fall. A foremost authority on art and spirituality, Lady Wedgwood is a gifted, entertaining speaker, a distinguished art historian and an active member of the Anglican Church. She will taking a group for an in depth visit to The Cloisters, preceded by a discussion on pilgrimage and holy friendship, on Saturday, September 30th. On Sunday, October 1st, she will give the opening lecture on the Art and Spirituality series, entitled The Beauty of Holiness: the Artist as Saint, the Saint as Artist. To mark the opening of the lecture series and to give a warm Christ Church welcome to Pamela, we are planning a luncheon for that day. A Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (one of the UK’s oldest learned societies) and the holder of a Royal Pension from HM Queen Elizabeth II, Lady Wedgwood has a wide range of interests, with a major focus on Christian iconography, has written extensively, and has had a very successful series, The Secret Life of Paintings, aired on the BBC. She has also dedicated much of her time to strengthening efforts to ensure the protection of the earth and to assisting in the conservation of English cathedrals. During the first part of her stay, Pamela will be in Bronxville and will participate in parish life. Later, she will be giving other lectures in the area and in the city to which a wider audience will be invited but she will be our own special guest for the first few days. I look forward to your help in making Pamela’s stay amongst us a memorable occasion. -Hondi Brasco


Welcome to The Rev. Deacon Katherine Malin During the month of June we will welcome Deacon Kate Malin to our staff as curate. (The term Curate typically refers to an assisting priest in a parish. It is from the Latin curatus, “entrusted with the care” of something. It was originally used to describe a priest entrusted with the care (or “cure”) of souls in a particular area or parish). Kate graduated from General Seminary this May with a Master of Divinity degree and with honors. She earned her BA from Yale University and graduated cum laude. Kate is married and has three children - Caleb and Walker, b. 3/2/1998, are currently in second grade; Owen, b. 11/14/2001, is in PreK. Bruce Smith, Kate’s husband, is the Vice President for Development at General Seminary. Kate was ordained a deacon this spring and will be ordained a priest on September 16 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Although she is unable to lead the celebration of Holy Eucharist, she is able to get to work in all other ways immediately. Kate brings to us extraordinary gifts as a preacher, wonderful experience as a pastoral caregiver and organizer, solid and varied liturgical training and a background in theatre. Work on the Curate’s apartment must be done before Kate and her family move in, so they will not be in residence until the end of the summer. Kate will, however, be around during the week and here on Sundays. Please, when you see Kate, Bruce and the boys, make a point of introducing yourselves and warmly welcoming them to our family. I am absolutely delighted that she will be joining our staff. And as Bishop Sisk said at Confirmation on May 21, Christ Church and Kate (Deacon Malin) will do great things together. -Fr. Bird

Music Pre-Registration for all choirs has begun. If you are interested in participating in one of our choirs next year, please sign up in the Undercroft following Sunday morning services or contact Christopher Wells at 337-3544x116 or Sunday, June 11th is the last Sunday The Christ Church Choir will sing this season. As the choir enjoys a well-deserved break this summer, we are beginning to recruit for the fall. Do you love to sing? Do you know someone who loves to sing and needs some encouragement to join the choir? Join the Christ Church Choir! Sunday, June 11th:Recognition Sunday Choristers in The Christ Church Choir, Voice for Life, Schola Cantorum, Sing ‘n Ring, and The Primary Choir will robe and participate at this service. 9:00AM All Choirs except the Primary Choir rehearse 9:30AM Primary Choir Rehearsal Sunday, June 18th: Last “Parish Choir” Sunday. Come one, come ALL to the 9:00AM rehearsal to sing at the 10:00AM service.

A Year in Review At the end of this season of music at Christ Church, it seems fitting to think back to the many music moments we have shared together. The list is long, and I’m sure you can even add a few things of your own. Perhaps we can take these memories with us on break or vacation over the summer and remember with fondness the time we shared together this year: Choir Dinners, Choir Camp, “Bach to Bop” Concert, Youth Sunday, Washington DC Choir Tour, Advent Lessons & Carols, Christmas Eve, Parish Choir Sundays, Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza, Charis Chamber Voices, Elephants on the Ivories, Organ Concert, Holy Week, Easter Day, Evensong, Holocaust Commemoration Service, Joint Concert with The American Boychoir, Gallery Ringers Outreach Trip. As we prepare for Recognition Sunday, take your accomplishments to heart! You have brought delight to the ears of worshippers, inspired concert-goers, and made a commitment to an ensemble that matters to a great many people. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your contribution to the musical life of our Parish. -Christopher Wells

A Request from the Vestry and the Rector During the summer months Christ Church, like so any other churches, struggles to pay her bills. As we all travel on summer vacation our weekly pledges and gifts simply stop until the fall, leaving very little income to offset our summer expenditures. And unfortunately the summer is when most expenses for the fall are incurred. If you are able, please consider paying your pledge for the summer months in advance. It will make a huge difference to the church and help us avoid relying on our line of credit as we prepare for the fall. -Fr. Bird

Thank Yous Thank-you’s for the Picnic and the Year! We would all like to thank Mary and Chris Behrens for hosting us all, once again, for the Parish Picnic. The Spire deadline is well before the picnic but we can thank them in advance for their gracious hospitality. Their wonderful garden was such a beautiful spot last year and I am so grateful that they are welcoming us again this year. It is a gift to us all! May I also thank all of the cooks, bakers AND grillers that always make this picnic such a tasty repast! Finally, I would like to thank my terrific committee that is so lovely to work with and brings it all together on every occasion. They are: Karen Carpenter, Margaret Conaton, Kimberly Euston, Maria Hayes, Betsy Howard, Tracey Minich, Shruti Philips, Barbara Potgieter, Lea Kelsey, Letizia Seirup, Bea Welch and Nancy Whitney. With true appreciation,

-Lucie Dean

The Deadline to submit articles for the Fall issue of the Spire is August 17th. Have a wonderful summer!

The Holy Spirit gave power to the church through the disciples to spread the gospel. Pentecost is considered the birthday of the church. A special program to include telling the story of Pentecost, a special craft project and preparation for the Birthday Party for the parish will be led by Vicky Carter, our Sacristan. Parents who are attending the Godly Play meeting at 9am are welcome to leave their school age children. All Church School children are welcome. Don’t forget to wear red! The birthday celebration will take place following the 10 a.m. service (outside - weather permitting).
