Stewardship Committee

Stewardship committee 
     The Stewardship committee would like to thank all of you who donated coats to our coat drive. They will be a "warm hug" for those in need this winter. As of this time, we will not be collecting any more coats.  Thank you again, Diane McKeefery and Marian Heacock
Get to know your Parishioners 
     At the 8:00 service on Sundays, we have been blessed with a little ray of sunshine, named Arianna.  She is accompanied by her Grandmother Debbie Henkel and Great-Grandmother DeeDee Bolger. Debbie has been coming to Christ Church for 30 years. She has been a paramedic and a medical assistant. She loves the people at Christ Church. She said her Mother is the best Great-Grandmother.  Deedee is an administrator  for Wesley by the Bay, an affordable housing group for Seniors. She is also a seamstress. We have seen Arianna grow and is now toddling down the aisle to give the peace, even to Father Justin.  She even watches him intently when he is reading the Gospel like she is absorbing every word. I must say in the peacefulness of the early morning service, it is comforting to hear the cooing and talking of a child. Thank you Debbie and Deedee for sharing her with us.

The parish knitters meet Wednesdays at 1:30PM. For more information contact Jean Eichorst at 856.457.7770.
