Palm Sunday Offering
The offering for Palm Sunday this year will benefit The Order of St. John and its ministry to the 130-year-old Jerusalem Eye Hospital. The hospital is the region’s only charitable provider of eye care and treats patients regardless of religious, political and/or ethnic backgrounds. Serious eye diseases are common among Palestinians, who suffer from rates of blindness 10 times greater than those of Western Europeans and North Americans.
The Order of St. John is inspired by Christian ideals and the Jerusalem Eye Hospital treats mostly Muslim patients with the help of many Jewish physicians. The Order of Saint John is a non-political organization that has worked for centuries on furthering the cause of reconciliation and peace in the Middle East. Our gifts support much more than health care; they lift up the organization’s mission - to encourage the spiritual and moral strengthening of humankind and to promote the relief of sickness and suffering without discrimination.

This year's Easter Offering will benefit The Hope of Jesus Children's Home. This ministry seeks to provide care and protection for orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children in Honduras. Christ Church parishioners have traveled to Honduras to volunteer at The Hope of Jesus Children’s Home, and we also sell Hope Farm coffee at the church, which benefits this incredible ministry.
