Dear Saints of God,

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Christ.

We have begun our Summer Schedule, which will run through Sunday, September 8th, 2024. A comprehensive schedule was provided as part of our recent Parish Update.

Prayers for the Parish
Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for this parish family. Strengthen the faithful, arouse the careless, and restore the penitent. Grant us all things necessary for our common life, and bring us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Blessings and peace to all.

Respectfully,
Fr. Trevor+

Did You Know?

Did you know that even at standstill, you are actually travelling at 2.7 million MPH through the universe?
Add up the speed of the rotating earth, the earth revolving around the sun, the sun moving in the milky way, and the milky way moving through the universe and you get one fast speeding ticket.

Did you know that there is National Etch-A-Sketch Day?
Etch A Sketch Day is celebrated annually on July 12. Etch A Sketch is a mechanical toy used for drawing. It's an invention by André Cassagnes from France, and was manufactured by the Ohio Art Company. The Etch A Sketch was introduced on July 12, 1960 and sold for $2.99 (equivalent to $26 today). Being a classic, it has entertained and delighted generations of kids. Etch A Sketch Day is celebrated mainly by organizations, and everyone is encouraged to be creative and have fun.

Did you know that peanut butter can be made into diamonds?
Peanut butter can be converted into diamonds by subjecting it to extremely high temperature and pressure. Be warned- the quality of diamond produced by the peanut butter won't be something to write home about. The resulting diamonds are typically very small and tend to be muddy in color.

BSA Troop 76 Court of Awards

We are thrilled to announce that Cristian Soler from Troop 76 has achieved the prestigious Eagle Scout rank, the highest accomplishment in scouting. The recognition ceremony took place at Christ Church last Saturday, where Fr. Trevor, Troop 76 leaders, fellow scouts, family, and friends gathered to celebrate this remarkable achievement. Cristian demonstrated exceptional leadership and dedication in earning his Eagle Rank, culminating in a significant project at Christ Church. Special thanks go to Mr. Watson, Mr. Fehr, Ms. Elizabeth, and Ms. Charlotte for their unwavering support, as well as to Cristian's family for their integral role in his journey to this remarkable milestone. SEE PHOTOS ABOVE.

BSA Troop 76 Eagle Scout Project - Christian Soler

Cristian successfully completed his Eagle Scout Project at Christ Church. The project involved the demolition and replacement of planter beds, adding 2 new beds to bring the total to 6 raised planter beds. These beds have been transformed into a community garden that will provide fresh vegetables and fruits for those in need. You can find this wonderful garden on the northwest side of the church property behind the back parking lot. We commend Cristian for his hard work and dedication to this meaningful project that will benefit the community for years to come. SEE PHOTOS ABOVE.

**Please note that seeds or saplings for fruits and vegetables are welcomed as a donation to be planted.
