St. Christopher's Graduates

This Spring several in our St. Christopher's community graduated. We want to acknowledge this milestone, offer our congratulations, and send the graduates off with our best wishes for their future endeavors!

  • Molly Anzalone graduated from Columbia College, Chicago, with a BA in Business and Entrepreneurship. She plans to work in the film production industry.
  • Sarah Jacobs graduated from Fishers High School and will attend the University of Cincinnati.
  • Corrine Miller graduated from Carmel High School and will attend Indiana University to study biology. 
  • Erin Waite graduated from Westfield High School. She is headed to the University of Southern Indiana to study exercise science. 
Search Committee Update

We are working with the Diocesan Transition Minister and our Search Coach to make final adjustments to the materials and web content that will be used to invite potential rectors to apply. We expect that the invitation will officially launch on our website and at the Office of Transition Management a few days following the July Fourth holiday. We will let you know when we reach that milestone in our transition process.

Please pray for the Search Committee and the priest whom God is calling to be our Rector.

As we seek a new rector, open our hearts in this congregation to support and care for each other. Direct and guide the work of the search committee that their efforts may be pleasing to you, O Lord. Prepare the heart of the priest who will answer the call to lead us.
