Here are two photos from the warm Celebration of New Ministry.
The Bishop's address as well as the Rev'd Joan's first sermons are posted on the Listen page.
This Sunday will be a Celebration of New Ministry during which Bishop Anne Germond will install Archdeacon Joan as our new incumbent. As Archdeacon Joan mentioned, this is not just a celebration for her, but for the whole of the parish as we move forward with her.
The service will begin at 3:00 p.m. followed by a luncheon, in the abundant manner Christ Church provides.
Please join in the celebration!
Unfortunately, services are cancelled today due to a road closure of Greenwood Ave. caused by a water main break.
