Snapshots of Life at Christ Church


This Sunday, October 26th:

The Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost




At its regular meeting on October 21, the Vestry voted to call a special meeting of the parish for Sunday, November 9 at 10:00 am. The meeting will be an opportunity to kick-off the 2015 stewardship campaign; to receive an update on the transition process leading toward to the call of a new rector; to hear a report on the progress of the capital campaign and associated projects around the church buildings; and to consider the following proposed amendment to Section 2(a) of the parish Bylaws, recommended unanimously by the Vestry:


 “Should a warden’s second term expire during a period of transition to a new rector, that term may be extended for the length of the transitional period by the recommendation of the vestry and a vote of the parish at the annual meeting. That extended term shall expire at the annual meeting following the election of a new rector.”
