The ECW of Christ Church is hosting a RECEPTION in the Parish Hall, Palm Sunday, April 1, after the 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services in honor of The Right Reverend Jerry Lamb. Bishop Lamb will be celebrating at Christ Church and we are looking forward to his visit.

Bishop Lamb will preside at the Apostolic Rite of Confirmation and Reception at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, April 1, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. Father Peter will be using the adult class on the Sundays in March to offer an introduction to the Episcopal Church. The class meets in the Board Room. The purpose of the class is to help people discern if the traditional Anglican way we follow here at Christ Church is for them. The title of the last session is:
March 25 Baptism as ordination for mission.
People who wish to be confirmed or received should indicate this desire to the interim rector at their earliest convenience. We are required to notify the bishop’s office at least a week in advance.

The PROFILE of our DIOCESE is now on the web at: for all of us to see. Please take a few moments to explore this effort to communicate the picture of who the Episcopal Church is in Nevada. You will be impressed with the amount of mission and ministry in which many of us are engaged. Results of our Focus Groups meetings are there, with a description of the type of leader we are seeking for our next Bishop. Please help in the process by sending the URL web address to your friends far and wide! The more we spread the word, the more likely we are to find the leader we seek for our Diocese. If you do not have access to the web, ask a friend, go to the nearest library, stop by the Church office to get a print of the website or you can have one mailed to you by Barbara Lewis at
our Diocesan Office. Call her at (702) 737-9190.
