No doubt people have been horrified by the unfolding crisis in Ukraine. Many people are trying to understand what they can do to help families fleeing the violence and destruction, and many people are having a difficult time coming to terms with how this can happen. It is hard to watch as it unfold on the news. For many, the power of prayer helps, and can be soothing, meditative and hopeful.
Christ Church Greenwich is holding a community-wide Candlelight vigil on Sunday, March 20, at 5:00 pm. Please join and bring friends.
“Whenever innocents are suffering around the world, we must rally together and channel the resources of the world and encourage people of good will everywhere to do the right thing,” said the Rev. Marek Zabriskie, Rector of Christ Church Greenwich. “We invite you to join us and pray in solidarity with the good people of Ukraine and with the people of Greenwich, our nation and our world. Prayer facilitates God’s transforming goodness in the world”
About Christ Church Greenwich
Christ Church is a lively community of faith composed of people with diverse backgrounds, circumstances, and spiritual journeys, bound together by God’s love for all people everywhere and united in the common mission to seek and serve God in all persons. We fulfill this work through the dedicated ministries of over 300 volunteers annually, who serve on more than 40 commissions, committees, guilds and task forces. In addition, the church hosts and supports more than 20 community meetings per week including 12-step programs, choral and music groups, neighborhood groups, and children’s programs. The Christ Church Preschool is a regional leader in early education, and our bookstore, Dogwood Gifts and Books, is a thriving resource of both faith-based and secular books. Their 40-year partnership with Neighbor to Neighbor allows them to serve those in Greenwich who are in need of food.
The Mission of Christ Church Greenwich is to be a vibrant Episcopal community proclaiming God’s love for every human being, no exceptions. Following Jesus’ teachings is their compass for personal growth, community outreach and harmonious living. Its vision is to seek and serve God in all people through inspiration from the Bible, worship, community outreach, music, and art in our sacred historic home.
