Check-ins & Short Survey

Soon you should hear from a Vestry member via phone or email. Our Vestry once again is reaching out to be in touch with our parishioners to check in, confirm contact information, and to ask a few questions which will help our parish discern priorities and ministries in the year and years ahead. We look forward to connecting.

Podcast on Graced Conversations

Christ Episcopal Church has been supporting the Community of Grace, an intentional multi-racial group of conversation and non-liturgical worship. Christ Church and Community of Grace have much in common in Christ. Community of Grace is a church plant led by Rev. Alicia Dixon-Garrard. Mother Elizabeth participated in podcasts for this group. You can listen to the podcast here.

Christ Church was the venue for Community of Grace's music and art videos for Advent and Christmas. I encourage you to listen to the podcasts and explore Community of Grace's website:

CHOW Pantry

Our freezer in the CHOW pantry has died, thawing all our meat and perishable goods for CHOW and damaging the carpet as the freezer defrosted. While this is disappointing, this gives us the opportunity for needed refurbishments to our CHOW closet as well as cleaning. CHOW will temporarily be closed and will reopen in November. Many thanks to CHOW team leader, Kevin Shea, to Barb Stanton and to all who assisted in the initial cleanup. Thank you to all who are helping clean and renovate our CHOW pantry.

Global Community Outreach

We at Christ Church feel compassion with Afghans arriving in the U.S., with Haitians after the earthquake, and with the people of Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Ida.

People already are considering ways to assist, and making a proposal to Vestry.

In the meantime, cash to support relief efforts always is welcome. Please note Syracuse is a resettlement city for Afghans. We may be called upon to assist directly.

If you would like to make a contribution, please consider:

Episcopal Migration Ministries for those arriving from Afghanistan


Episcopal Relief Development for those in Louisiana and Haiti.


Roofers have taken the first steps to prepare the roof for Lupini to put the capstones and the cross back on the roof in the next few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this project. Including the Diocese's grant of $5,000, and a potential matching grant of $10,000 grant from Landmarks Conservancy Sacred Sites, donations and pledges of over $70,000 have been received to date!

Your generosity and patience are GREATLY appreciated.

Prayers & Prayer List

I cannot tell you how the light comes, but that it does. That it will. That it works its way into the deepest dark that enfolds you, though it may seem long ages in coming or arrive in a shape you did not foresee.

And so we pray we may turn ourselves toward the light giving thanks for Christ’s birth and this communion. May we lift our faces to let the light find us. May we bend our bodies to follow the arc it makes. May we open and open more and open still to the blessed light that comes. *

With thanks to Jan Richardson*

Prayer List

In the week ahead, please pray for comfort and healing for: Bill, Bobbie, Candie, Connor, Connie, Don, George, Joell, Kathy, Mark, Millie, Mother Elizabeth, Osmond, Pat, Rick, Rose, Sally, Scott, Rusty, Joan, Mike and Angela.

A Word From Your Junior Warden

Prayer for our Country:

Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
