It's "Back to Everything" Time!!!
September 14th, 8 am & 10:30 am services, kicks off the "new year" with special blessings for our young people, their families, and all of us who are beginning our activities anew!!

The St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral Choirs of Buffalo, under the direction of Mr. Jonathan Scarozza, provided the special music for a service of Evensong at Christ Church on Sunday evening, March 23rd at 4 pm.
The Evensong is a sung evening prayer service which comes from England.
Following the service, a dinner of soups, salads and desserts was given for all in attendance. A "meet and greet" was held before the service.
The Cathedral Choirs will be going on tour to England during the summer of 2015. They will sing and tour Ely Cathedral and Peterborough Cathedral while there.
