We are excited to offer in-person and online services this year for Holy Week and Easter, including five services of Holy Eucharist in our sanctuary on Easter Sunday – 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 5 p.m. Registration for these services will be sent to you via email at noon on Tuesday, March 30. Capacity for each of the indoor Easter services is 100. Attendees will be required to wear masks and we will follow guidelines for social distancing.

We will share online services via email on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, an Easter Vigil service on Holy Saturday, and Easter Day. We will also hold in-person, outdoor services at noon and 5 p.m. on Good Friday. Registration for those two services will be shared via email on Monday, March 29.

Lenten Series with Christ Church Clergy

Wednesdays during Lent, Christ Church clergy will share a brief, online homily. This series and online/at-home resources for Lent will be shared via email each week, beginning Feb. 24.

Daily Devotion Emails

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, we’ll share a daily devotion, written by Christ Church parishioners, clergy and staff members, each morning. If you are already on our email list, you’ll automatically receive these messages. If you’d like to be added to receive messages like this from Christ Church, please email Elizabeth McKinnon.
