Around the country, around the state and around our Diocese people will remember the fallen children and teachers at Newtown, Connecticut’s Sandy Hook School. The challenge is not simply to remember but to resolve to do something that will change the climate, the culture of gun violence that plagues this nation. The people of Newtown understand this and ask that we not come to their town but that we work in our own towns and cities, communities and neighborhoods, to take action against gun violence
Next month, New Jersey Together Against Gun Violence will gather here at Christ Church once again to hear from mayors and police chiefs on their responses to our proposals to take action to end gun violence. You are invited to join us Thursday evening, January 16th at 7:30 PM.

Join us Sunday, December 15 when the 10:30 Mass will also feature the traditional service of Advent Lessons and Carols, led by our Choir and Director of Music. Follow them as they move from Advent Matins at the church entrance to end at the high altar for the traditional vesper responsory, a movement that reflects this season of preparation as we move from darkness to the light shining in Jesus’ birth.
Enjoy a sumptuous holiday lunch and take care of last minute Christmas gifts and bag stuffers at this year's one-day only ECW Mini Fair and Luncheon Sunday, December 22nd at 12:30 PM. Stay after church and help green the church for Christmas, and then enjoy a boxed lunch. Donation requested is $10. Come shop, eat in or take out. Please place orders for lunch or poinsettias (not the ones going on the altar--that’s a separate form with the Altar Guild) with Robabel Fraser or Joyce Ifill.
