MASS ON THE GRASS
Beginning Saturday, June 8th at 5pm, Christ Church will again be holding service outdoors each Saturday throughout the summer. Mass on the Grass is Holy Eucharist with a casual setting. Bring your own lawn chair! The music, liturgy, and dress will all be less formal than what you will find on a Sunday morning. An altar is set up at the south end of the little strip at the back of our parking lot waiting your arrival. This service is meant for all the family; bring a blanket for the kids to sit on, and a toy or two, as well. Pets welcome as well. We will provide everything else.

COSTUMED GRAVEYARD TOUR
On May 18th at 10 am Christ Episcopal Church will host a Costumed Graveyard Tour. This is one of a number of events at the church celebrating our historic graveyard’s 300th anniversary. The Costumed Graveyard Tour consists of actors portraying Notable Figures in the graveyard. The performers, members of our Dead Actors’ Guild, stand by their gravemarkers and tell their stories. A costumed guide brings the visitors to each of the characters being portrayed. The depicted individuals span the graveyard’s history from the 17th to the 20th century. As a whole, it is a portrait of the evolution of our community’s history.
Free and open to the public.
