A Reflection from a Parishoner, Search Committee Update, St. Patrick

While Christ Church is without a priest, individuals in our church family will be asked to contribute brief reflections to our monthly newsletter.

  Parishoner Reflections
March 2021
We began quarantine during Lent 2020, and we continue to experience restrictions a year later. Where am I now? I’ve had my first dose of the COVID vaccine. I have discovered that yoga via Zoom is acceptable and that playing the piano each day can be quite soothing. I have accepted that, for now, FaceTime will remain my main source of communication with my children and grandchild. I’ve resumed knitting a prayer shawl I began two years ago. I’ve watched more Netflix movies than I care to admit, and I’ve read my share of books.

In Christ,
Natalie Coleman

A Search Committee Update

from Dan Cahill, Chairman
Christ Church,
The search Committee is now formally active.  We will attempt to keep you informed as we proceed so that you can share our excitement.  The following members have agreed to serve.  Betty Budde, Liz Wolchko, Pat Walmsley, Cari Zimmer, Greg Morrison, Phil Gardner, and Rives Coleman.
We ask for your prayers for this committee and our church as we seek a new Priest.  This is a spiritual journey that will allow us to evaluate ourselves and our ministry and our goals for the future.  With God's help we will move forward in a positive direction.
We also ask you to take the attached survey.  All members and interested parties are encouraged to offer their thoughts by taking this online survey.  We have the portal open until Sunday, March 14.  Should you need a paper version, please contact the Church Office.  This is our way of soliciting your thoughts about a new Priest and the direction of the Church.
On behalf of the Search Committee, I would like to thank  you for your support.
Dan Cahill, Chairman

St. Patrick, March 17

When we think of St.  Patrick, we think of him as the most famous of all Irish people, but in reality, Patrick was born a Roman, but born in Britain, in the fifth century, where his family had a villa and land. At the age of 16 he was kidnapped by pirates and sold as a slave in Ireland where he labored for six years until he escaped and made his way back to Britain.  His family practiced Christianity, and Patrick became a priest.  He felt called to go back to Ireland and bring Christianity to its people. His genius was in incorporating preexisiting Irish beliefs and symbols into his teachings about Christianity.  He is a patron saint of Ireland, and his feast day is March 17.

What's Happening at
Christ Episcopal Church?

Please pray the Daily Office with us.  Lead by Heather and Ed Gallop, we pray nearly every day at 9, noon, and 5.  Sunday mornings are the exception as we offer Bible Study and the worship service with music.  Links can be found on the homepage of our website.  Should you care to join this ministry, please reach out.  Loaves and Fishes continues to serve to-go meals to the community the first and third Wednesday of the month with a skeleton crew under the leadership of David Cole.  Your financial help is much appreciated. Links for all events are on the website homepage including the Virtual Narthex on Thursday evenings.  Although we are in a state of transition, activity remains strong.  Help the Search Committee take the survey.  Thanks to all!
