alt

By Staff

Apr. 8, 2020: Easter and Passover are traditionally times when extended families comes together, some travelling long distances, for celebrations. 

This year, with social distancing and stay-at-home directives, Easter and Passover will be different but we are sure it will include stay-at-home celebrations. 

Next week in MyhometownBronxville, we'd like to feature photos of your stay-at-home celebrations.  Please send your Easter photos to stc@myhometownbronxville.com by Tuesday, April 14, 5:00 PM.

The Staff of MyhometownBronxville wishes you and your loved ones a Happy Easter and Happy Passover while you are "social distancing."

Stay home. Stay well. Stay safe.



 
Christ Church Has Food Drive on Palm Sunday PDF Print Email

By Kevin Cook, member, Christ Church Bronxville

Apr. 8, 2020:  More than 50 community members brought bags of cereal, canned vegetables, and pasta to Christ Church Bronxville on Palm Sunday, April 5, afternoon.

Volunteers from the parish, sporting Live Generously tee-shirts from Thrivent Financial, helped receive the filled bags and boxes for distribution at St. James Church in the Fordham neighborhood of the Bronx this week.

Christ Church collects food items for the St. James Food Pantry on the first Sunday of every month.

Rev. Michael Bird, rector of Christ Church, said: “Our calling as Christians is to care for all of God’s people, and some of His people are hungry. And so we will help feed them.”

Neighbor Marianne Mills walked over with a generous heart to help

Villager Andrew Gibbon summed it up nicely as he delivered several large bags of groceries: “We all have so much to share.”

That sentiment was echoed throughout the afternoon. One nearby neighbor brought a bag of food and asked about helping the project financially and wrote a check to St. James Church for $1000.00!

Jody Maier of Christ Church, who chairs this monthly effort, was delighted with the response. “People are always seeking ways to give, and today’s effort brought out the best in everyone!”

The Palm Sunday collection was enhanced with a generous grant from Thrivent Financial, a Fortune 500 non-profit financial services organization based in the Midwest, the mission of which is to help its members be wise with money and live generously to strengthen their families and communities.

Invitation to "While We’re Apart" by Christ Church Bronxville PDF Print Email

alt

By VIncent Preti, Communications Director at Christ Church Bronxville 

Apr. 1, 2020: While we’re apart from one another helping to flatten the curve of COVID-19, we invite all in the community to join us on our new webpage, aptly titled While We’re Apart. The webpage includes various digital resources to help us keep faith and community at the forefront while we are unable to physically be together. Here are some highlights:

Daily Livestreams: On Sundays, at 10:00 AM, we are holding livestream services directly from Christ Church. We are fortunate to have much of our staff living in the parish complex, enabling us to offer these services, live music, and sermons to the community. The bulletin is published weekly on our website and sent out through our parish newsletter. Additionally, every weekday we are livestreaming our Noonday Prayer Services and a Musical Meditation at 12:00 PM.

Church School at Home: Though Church School isn’t in session, we’ve created Church School at Home, weekly step-by-step lessons centered around Biblical stories. Each lesson includes video instruction, cartoons, prayers, and interactive crafts. There are two lessons released every Friday: one for younger children in the Godly Play Class (ages 3 - 1st grade) and one for older children in the Godly Dialogue Class (2nd - 6th grades). Although the lessons were designed for those age groups, all children (and all adults) will certainly be able to follow along and take something from both lessons. We encourage parents to follow along with their children and get the whole family involved! 

Classes for Adults: Periodically, we will be holding Zoom classes. Our first class will be a two-part series on the power of Holy Week as story, liturgy, and a model for life in these times. The class begins on Wednesday, Apr. 1, at 7:00 PM and will continue the following Wednesday, Apr. 8, at 7:00 PM. A Zoom link will be provided on the While We’re Apart webpage. 

Weekly Digital Schedule:

-Sundays at 10:00 AM: Sunday Livestream from Christ Church

-Monday - Friday, 12:00 PM: Noonday Prayer Livestream and Musical Meditation from Christ Church

-Wednesdays at 7:00 PM - Short Series Zoom classes for adults

-Fridays: Church School at Home activities distributed

We will soon announce our digital schedule for Holy Week and Easter. Stay home, stay safe, and remember that you are always in the loving presence of God.
