Stewardship Committee
Fall is around the corner and Christ Church will be holding some special events.  The Stewardship committee will be hosting another "Trivia Night" on Saturday, September 28th from 7-9 p.m.  All parishioners and friends may participate with a team of 2-4 people.  Bring your own drinks and snacks.
    We will also be hosting a "Meet & Greet" on Wednesday, October 9th from 6-8 p.m.  This is an open house, so please attend at a time that is convenient for you.  There will be light refreshments served. This is a good way to get to know and socialize with new parishioners and established parishioners.  Come relax and enjoy some good conversation!
    October 25th is our annual wine tasting.  Details will be forthcoming.
    Every Sunday in November is going to be dedicated to bringing a friend to church.  We would love for you to bring a friend, relative, teacher, someone special, etc. to show off our beautiful church, welcoming parishioners, and Father Justin, all of which is why we all attend Christ Church.
    Any questions about these events, you can contact Diane McKeefery at
