Christ Church Flying Pink Flags!
If you happen to drive by Christ Church (Rochester Rd. & Fieldcrest Dr. in Lockport) any time between October 12th and 18th, you'll likely notice the hot pink flags on our lawn. That's because the congregation of Christ Church joined with other Episcopal church's across WNY to raise money for breast cancer research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo.
For every $5 donated, the church received three flags. Members who donated have the option of writing the name of a loved one or friend whose life was touched by breast cancer on their flags before the flags are placed outside.
Come on by and witness this "sea of pink"!!!
"ALL CREATURES GREAT & SMALL"
Join with Christ Church in the celebration of God's glorious creation on Sunday, October 5th at the 8 am and 10:30 am services, followed by a Blessing of Animals outside the church at noon!
If the young people don't have a pet (ALL pets are welcome!) to bring to the blessing, they are invited to bring their favorite stuffed animal to the services and blessing!!
Pet food and supplies for the Pet Food Pantry that serves the Lockport community through Grace Church will also be collected. The need is great for our furry "critters" that make life so special for us. Any dobnations would be greatly appreciated!!
