Service Leaflets and Announcements
Choral Evensong continues

Sunday, October 20, at 5:00 p.m.

The next service of Choral Evensong will include works by H. Balfour Gardiner, John Sanders, and Charles Villiers Stanford. Evensong will continue on first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month through May. A reception follows each service. Christ Church is one of a very few parishes in the U.S. to offer this beautiful, quintessentially Anglican liturgy with such frequency. Please plan to join us.
