SOS to all needlepoint stitchers! Did you know that each boy and girl singing in the Christ Church Choirs has a hand-stitched patch on the blazer of their choir uniform? A patch is given to each chorister when they are officially admitted into the choir in June. We are running out of patches and stitchers and we need your help! If you are interested in stitching a patch or two (or five!), please contact Scott Hanoian right away. All materials, directions, charts and finishing are provided for you and each patch takes approximately 15 hours to stitch. Please help to keep this glorious tradition alive for years to come!
Acolytes Wanted Girls and boys (4th grade and above); and adults needed! To volunteer, please contact Ted Hagan at 248.755.1655 or email@example.com.
Memorials A great way to give thanks for our loved ones is to make an altar flower contribution in their name. The suggested contribution is $60. Contact Maryann DeAngelo to schedule a memorial.
Reserving Space for an Event In an effort to ensure that events are planned well in advance, and to eliminate scheduling conflicts, requests for room reservations must be received at least 21 days in advance of the event. Submitted forms are reviewed at the weekly staff meeting. You will be notified within 24 hours after a decision has been made. You can complete a "green" sheet HERE.
Pastoral Care Visits If you know of individuals that are housebound or in need of pastoral visits, please contact MaryAnn DeAngelo in the church office at 313.885.4841 ext. 107.
