Our volunteer spirit

Vestry member Dr. Peter Schaeffer helps clean up the church yard for Holy Week.

Christ Church also has paid and trained caregivers in the nursery for both services.  And we have a part-time sexton who takes care of our facilities.  Otherwise, we rely on parish volunteers to maintain our historic churchyard, buildings and grounds.  For more on our extensive ministries, please see our Ministries section.
