Hurricane Relief and Football

The devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Texas continues as I write this on the twelfth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (August 29). Flooding is now moving into Louisiana. You can help by contributing to Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD). ERD sends funds directly to affected dioceses and Episcopal congregations. They also provide much needed expertise and personnel in disaster relief. Many people from Christ Church participated in ERD efforts in hands-on relief in New Orleans following Katrina. Please consider a generous gift to ERD by going to this link:

Our bishop has given us two tickets to the Ohio State vs. Michigan State football game on November 11. The gift of the tickets is to raise money for mission. Those who make a gift to ERD online will receive an acknowledgement email. If you forward that email to, your name will be entered into a hat for a drawing on Sunday, October 15. The winner will receive both tickets. This is open to anyone, so please encourage friends and family from beyond the Christ Church community to contribute to ERD and forward the acknowledgement to Have them include their names and contact information.
