My family started coming to Christ Church around 10 years ago. My earliest memories are definitely the Christmas pageant. I loved babies and always wanted to be Mary so that I could hold them. When I was in the 4th grade, I came so close to being Mary, but because we had so many girls in the class, guess who had to throw on the beard and be Joseph?! Me! But I was rewarded a year later when I finally got my time to be Mary.
I started in the acolyte program when I was in the fourth grade and have been active in it ever since. My fondest memory is when we went to Washington DC to participate in the procession of the acolytes at the National Cathedral. We had a great time being part of the service, but we also had fun sightseeing, spending time together with our fellow acolytes as well as the families we stayed with. I really enjoy acolyting and taking part in the service.
Haiti fundraisers have been my favorite part of my Christ Church experience. I love helping to organize the event and making a lot of fun crafts. It makes it so much more satisfying when you know your work is helping out a great cause, like the Holy Trinity School in Haiti. The most memorable event for me was when we decorated the bird houses.
I feel so lucky to be part of Christ Church and look forward to serving God and the church in the future!
