Special Collection for the Almoner's Fund
Advent is an especially appropriate time to remember Christ’s mission to the poor in our midst as we remember his own first Advent in weakness and poverty. Born in a manger to peasant parents, he thereby put himself in solidarity with the underprivileged and outcast. And he calls us all, if we are to be like him, to orient our lives likewise.
For all these reasons, we will take a special offering to support this fund on the First Sunday of Advent. Checks can be made payable to Christ Church Anglican, with “Rectors Fund” or "Almoners Fund" on the memo line. If you have an interest in supporting our ministry to the most vulnerable in our midst, please consider making an additional gift to support this fund to Christ Church this Sunday.
