THANK YOU!! I can’t begin to tell you how deeply I appreciate the wonderful reception in honor of my ‘first 25 years’ as your parish administrator. The reception reflected in the most generous way the best of Christ Church’s hospitality. The icon is so very beautiful and has found its place on my family room mantel for all to admire and a constant reminder of how very blessed I am. Your generous check beyond appreciative. And best of all, your love and support means more to me than I can say. I believe God was smiling down on me when he led me to Christ Church. Thank you!! With a grateful heart, Rita
