From our Rector

In a day and age where division and partisanship are prominently displayed on social media, it is fitting to bring to light a tradition among Christians known as the Octave or Week for Christian Unity. The Prayers for Christian Unity begin on January 18, The Confession of St. Peter, and concludes on January 25, The Conversion of St. Paul.
During this octave we can take time to reflect and think of new ways of understanding and working with other Christians in promoting world peace and respecting the dignity of every human being in the name of Christ. I encourage you to take time to look at the resources provided by the World Council of Churches for the Week of Christian Unity,, and unite in prayer for the attainment of unity of all the people of God.
Faithfully yours,
Father Justin

Sunday Coffee Hour!
Coffee Hour on Sunday after the 10am Eucharist is a meaningful experience for becoming better acquainted and a great opportunity to welcome those new attending Christ Church. Recently we have not been able to enjoy this gathering regularly as there has been no one setting it up. Therefor it would be greatly appreciated if individuals or groups of people would be kind enough to volunteer. There is a sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall.
