  • Thanksgiving Ingathering

    Thank you to everyone who helped to make our Thanksgiving Ingathering so successful. 50 boxed dinners (plus 6 boxes of miscellaneous items) were delivered to St Mark’s Center for Community Renewal for the benefit of families served by them.

    Thank you to Betty Truscott, Vicki Schmelzer and Lauren Badal for organizing the wonderful ‘party’ on the church’s front yard. Over 40 parishioners stopped by to share friendship and homemade baked goods. Thank you to Clint Badal who took pictures for our Christmas greeting slide show. Thank you to the Christ Church youth group for boxing up the Thanksgiving donations and to Cindy and Bill McCormack for once again delivering our donations to St Mark’s. Special thanks to Christine Stockhausen Butler who assisted in almost every aspect of the Ingathering. What a blessed event this was – a true testament of our parish’s generosity and love of neighbor. 

  • House blessing

    A house blessing is a well known but underused rite offered by the church. Normally, it involves the priest sprinkling Holy Water and offering prayers in each room. However, with social distancing guidelines in place, I won't be able to enter your home, but I can come to your house, stand outside and offer the blessing. Please call the office if you would like to request a house blessing!  -Michael +
