Enews: Guest Preacher Sunday
We welcome back a friend of Christ Church this Sunday to preach: The Rev. Jamie Hamilton.
For twenty years, Jamie was both an educator and administrator at Phillips Exeter Academy, teaching religion and philosophy and overseeing the health and welfare of students in her role as dean. In October 2014, she was called to become the Rector of All Saints’ Church in Peterborough. In October 2021, she retired from parish work to write about the universal themes of the Qur’an that speak to the depth of our shared faith as Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Welcome back Suzanne Jalbert Jones
Suzanne Jalbert Jones has been named Interim Director of Music at Christ Church.
As our Director of Music from 2014 - 2018, Suzanne enjoyed the richly musical and spiritual parish of Christ Church and considers it her home. She brings with her a diverse background of musical training from New England Conservatory of Music and University of New Hampshire, although her greatest teachers are her friends and family, with whom she often shares the stage. She honors the power of music to heal and bring people together and has built her musical practice upon that tenant. She hopes to inspire any individual, with a song in their heart, to join the Christ Church Choir! In her words: "she is grateful to once again be making a joyful sound with Christ Church Exeter." Suzanne will join this Sunday, January 22nd.

Donations for the church in Cuba
(Fr. Aurelio and his wife Laura in 2022 in Cardenas, Cuba receiving Christ Church's donations)
Five of us from Christ Church will be traveling to Cuba in March to bring much needed medicine and supplies for water filtration systems.
As in past years, we will be collecting much needed over-the-counter- medicines and other products to bring down with us. Some of these items may seem to us as very basic, but they are largely unavailable anywhere on the island. Please give to one of the clergy or Darla in the church office. GRACIAS!
