If you have any questions, please email the parish office or Lee Purcelli.

An overall review of the Bible is offered each spring in our annual Inquirers’ course, offered by the rector, for those seeking confirmation in the Episcopal church or anyone who wishes to examine or Judeo/Christian heritage.
Centering Prayer is contemplative prayer grounded in the principle of the Divine Indwelling, which holds that the Trinity is present in each of us and is the source and sustenance of our being on every level. Centering prayer is a simple method of praying where we are essentially “consenting to God’s presence and action within.” The method is easily described to newcomers and over time its effects become increasingly powerful. It can be practiced alone or with a group. The Christ Church Centering Prayer group meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the Rector’s study.
Book Discussion Groups
Book Discussion Groups are offered on a periodic basis. Currently, there are plans to resume a book discussion group in the fall.
