An Evening of Centering Prayer

Posted by Meredith, November 3, 2016

On November 11, at 7:00 p.m. in the historic Church, we welcome Mary Dwyer, one of the early founders of the Centering Prayer movement, to teach us the basics of Centering Prayer. Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer. What is contemplative prayer? Prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. For more information, please contact the Rev. Ann Gillespie.

Ongoing Assessments in Haiti, Cuba and Carolinas Following Hurricane Matthew

Posted by Meredith, October 11, 2016

Episcopal Relief & Development continues to provide technical assistance to local partners in the areas affected by Hurricane Matthew, as the storm dissipates over the Atlantic Ocean. In the places most severely impacted, information gathering is hampered by downed communications lines, widespread power outages and damage to critical roads and bridges. For example, the main bridge that connects the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince to the nation’s southern peninsula was destroyed, causing significant delays in relief supplies and disaster responders accessing devastated parts of the country.

Anne Landry Art Fete and Benefit

Posted by Meredith, October 5, 2016

Join us for the Anne Landry Art Fete and Benefit on October 29! Whimsical or religious, and sometimes both, the art of long-time Christ Church parishioner Anne Landry has delighted and intrigued patrons of the Torpedo Factory for years. Her singular vision is evident in each unique work, often inspired by scriptural passages but unlike any religious artwork you have ever seen. Her vibrant use of color evokes emotion and meaning in a highly personal manner. In an act of unexpected generosity, Ms. Landry has donated a significant portion of her portfolio to Christ Church with the hope that any sale would benefit the Church's mission and that her special and inimitable art would somehow be made available to art lovers.
