Video Update on Higher Ground September 2018


August 22, 2017 Hard Hat Report 

With appreciation and congratulations to our Christ Church parishioners who contributed to the Higher Ground Campaign; McMath Construction, Lisa Condrey Ward, and Don Duggan, whose vision and hard work restored and transformed St. Cecilia House; and so many parishioners who helped with our Grand Opening and Dedication of St. Cecilia House this past Sunday. Rory Dufour led a fantastic second line to St. Cecilia to begin the celebration. Father Bill gave a special blessing and dedication and with Lisa and Don, who all together, cut the red ribbon to begin the tour. The champagne was flowing and pastries and breads were absolutely delectable! Formation Fest kicked off the new school year showing off our pin-wearing teachers/leaders. We look forward to an exciting year of discovery in those classes and gatherings, and many, many years of beautiful singing for our choir, meetings and gatherings in our St. Cecilia House!

This St. Cecilia house restoration is the first major project completion for the Higher Ground Campaign and we couldn’t be more pleased with this beautiful and multifunctional space. The Higher Ground Campaign poster and brochures were prominently displayed throughout the building to show, not only our appreciation and excitement for completion of this major project, but also to acknowledge that the Higher Ground Campaign is ongoing with projects continuing for another two and one-half years, through 2019. The Campaign is also still accepting pledges and has brochures, the proposed projects and pledge cards available in the church narthex and office.

                                                                                                                                                            Your HIGHER GROUND Follow-up Committee,
                                                                        Vicki, Becky, Tom and John
