Many, Many Thanks!! The Lenten Suppers served during the Lenten series, Know Chocolate for Lent, were all delicious. Many, many thanks go to Alice and Reed Underhill, Vanessa and Luke Asterman, Chip Curtis & team and David and Deborah Cook for the meals they provided for the program. A job well done! Celebrating Thomas Cranmer, Wednesday March 20th We owe much of our liturgy and worship style to Thomas Cranmer (d. 1556). We will celebrate his life and contribution to our faith at this week's Wednesday Eucharist (10:00am in the Chapel). Ken Rowe, who sings in the choir and has taught liturgy and many seminaries, will be the guest preacher. We'll actually be doing the homily at the beginning of the service instead of it's usual place so that we can have a glimpse of the history of our beautiful worship. Following the service, Ken will give a brief lecture in the library. His talk will coincide with the Lenten book study Jesus was an Episcopalian. All are welcome to attend!
Stations of the Cross for Children Good Friday, March 29 at 5pm Bring your kids (or have your kids bring you) to this special Good Friday liturgy especially designed for them. We will gather on the lawn closest to Middle Street (weather permitting). Participants will walk with Jesus to the cross and tomb through sight, sound, touch and even taste. It will last approximately 30 minutes.
The Flowering Cross A note to Moms and Dads; please bring flowers for the 9:00am and 11:00am services on Easter so the children can decorate the cross. Visit Our Library The Christ Church Library has a wonderful selection of books for the children. Take time to stop in the Library with your children and look at and check-out these books, especially the books for the Easter season.
