Dear Parents – For Sunday school this Sunday, children should meet in the nursery indoors. Their teachers may take them to the rectory garden (adjoining to the church kitchen) to play, but children will return for Holy Communion and should rejoin their parents at that time (rather than playing outside on the patio). This will help ensure the children’s safety and a worshipful environment for others.

Music concerts at Christ Church. Have a lovely evening of beautiful music in two weeks, the first concert of the summer season, organized by our organist Antonio Ortega Rivera and performed by talented
young local musicians. All are welcome!
Saturday 23rd July, 5:00pm. $150 mxp/person

Save this NEW date: Mid-year parish informational meeting, July 31st, in the parish hall, at 12:15 (English) and 2:15 (Spanish). Learn about our finances and the 5 Marks of Mission guiding our future together. We will leave time for Q&A. Bring a safely prepared snack to share if you’d like.

Coming soon... but delayed by one week…

Do you wish to receive the weekly Community Weekly news bulletin from Christ Church? And/or would you like a pastoral meeting with one of the clergy? Please fill out a contact information slip from the Ushers’ table near the sanctuary doors, and indicate your need. You may also contact the parish secretary Mary Rosa (See contact info on back page).

The church sanctuary is usually open for private prayer during the week between 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Between services on Sundays, the Lady Chapel, also known as the “Columbarium,” which is entered to the right of the altar, is available.

If you are sick at home or in the hospital, please ask someone to notify the church, and let Mary Rosa know if you would like a pastoral visit and/or if you would like your name to be included in the Prayers of the People. Please help us love you well.

A Special thank you to Missy Holden and the Christ Church Guild for the BEAUTIFUL & much-needed renovation and reupholstering of furniture in the White Room. Thank you, also, to the guild for the tent that provides shade on the patio and for the new doormats inside the sanctuary doors. Everyone, be sure to take a look at these additions.
