Join us to hear a panel of five Professional Educators:
• Adam Rhodie, Head of School, Greenwich Country Day School
• Mary Grandville, Principal, Parkway School
• Bobby Walker, Assistant Head for Student and Community Life, Greenwich Academy
• Debbie Smith, Educator, Greenwich High School
• Ann Neary, Educator, Staples High School
• Lydia Marchese, Christ Church Youth Minister

This high-level panel will speak about how we can shape the mental, social, physical, spiritual, and moral development of our children and grandchildren.

When it comes to raising balanced, caring children with good values, some say it starts in the home. But what about the influence of their friends? Studies say children begin to consider other people’s feelings and have empathy by age three.

As parents, or as grandparents, trying to do the best for our children and grandchildren, how do we help them navigate with so much turbulence and entitlement swirling around them? How do we teach our children empathy, good values and a strong work ethic?

Join us for what is sure to be a helpful conversation with a panel of five professionals who navigate families and children through these waters every day.

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.
