BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS - THIS SUNDAY AT NOON
It's back! After a "paws" for a year, we'll gather, physically distanced, to give God thanks for the glory of the created order and to bless our pets (and pictures of same!)

Meet in front of the Church on Highland Avenue on this Sunday, 10/4 at noon.

Per CDC and Mass Board of Health, attendees are required to sign-in when visiting the Church or attending a Church activity. Masks and physical distancing are required. Please sign up here ahead of time.

Interested in a brief protocol-compliant tour of the renovated Chapel and a sample of the new Organ after the blessing? Let us know on the sign up.

CCN Choir Feature in the Cathedral's Compline on October 9
On Friday, October 9 at 8 p.m. the Christ Church Choir will be featured during Sung Compline at our Cathedral of St. Paul in Boston. Compline is the final service of the Daily Office. The service gives thanks for the day that is ending and looks forward with hope to the coming of the new day. A brief meditation will be offered by our Rector, and musical offerings from our choir. Participants can sing along using the musical setting which will be screen shared as the gathering begins. Zoom link will be sent next week.

Please consider adding your voice to the congregational hymns and perhaps join the Choir as well. We now have the opportunity to include you from your home, and it’s easier than you think. Click the link below to the invitation from our Music Director, Pamela Goody.
