Parishioners take communion to the homebound or hospitalized, “because we who are many are one body in Christ. We share on bread, one cup.”
Each week, flowers are delivered to parishioners in need or in honor of special occasions.
Trained parishioners visit at least once per month and develop one-on-one relationships with those who are homebound or who express a desire for a new friendship.
Episcopal Church Women (ECW) provides light food for receptions in the Commons or Courtyard following funeral services held at Christ Church.
The church holds classes to help parishioners following loss as a reminder that we are never alone in grief.
Fellow parishioners visit healthcare facilities to bring compassion and concern.

Parishioners knit and crochet shawls which represent the love of God and the Church, and they are blessed by the clergy and delivered to those in need of comfort.
Trained parishioners provide weekly one-on-one spiritual companionship for those experiencing a crisis, loss, or life transition.
Parishioners contact those experiencing joys and sorrows and pass along the love and support of Christ Church.
