On a hopeful note...

Christ Church will have a priest-in-charge beginning 1 October 2010 at least through the end of the year. The Rev Dr Richard Elberfeld has agreed to be with us two days a week. The Rev Kathleen Ziegenhine has agreed to supply at least the last two Sundays in September.

Now if only we could find a bi-vocational Episcopal priest who would relocate to beautiful Northwestern Pennsylvania!

Stay tuned...

On a sad note...

The formal announcement of Father Larry Donahue's resignation as Priest-in-Charge at Christ Church was made this morning by our senior warden. We are sad to say Goodbye but we are even sadder knowing that further health concerns are causing the separation. We pray for Father Larry and his wife Pat as both have physical issues that complicate their lives and are difficult to deal with.

After the Apple Tree Mural dedication.

The Right Reverend Sean Rowe, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania, blessed us with his presence on his day off to dedicate the Apple Tree Mural Friday night, 3 September.
The designer and painter of the four year project Jeri Hogan gave many personal tours.

A friend created a feast for the festivities
which many of us enjoyed.
There are more photos here.

If you would like to see Jeri's artwork, you are invited come to church on Sunday mornings for the 10 am service. Or you may find the church open on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11 am and 2 pm. You may make an appointment at other times by leaving a message on the answering machine. Just be aware that it may take several days to get back to you however. You may also send an email to the address on this blog.
