Episcopal Church 101

Fr. Kenn will offer Episcopal Church 101 classes for all interested in being Confirmed, Received, Baptized, or wishing to Reaffirm their faith. It's a fantastic way to deepen understanding of our faith, ask questions, and prepare for the Bishop's visit on May 19.

Classes will be Sundays after church in the conf. room – Apr. 21, Apr. 28 and May 12. For information, contact Fr. Kenn at:

Please note the class will not meet on May 5 due to the annual meeting.

The Philadelphia Eleven

Wednesday, May 1, 2024 at 6 p.m.

Sponsored by Christ Church Christiana Hundred and St. Barnabas Church

In an act of civil disobedience, a group of women and their supporters organize their ordination to become Episcopal priests in 1974. The Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia welcomes them, but change is no small task. The women are harassed, threatened and banned from stepping on church property. In this feature-length documentary film, we meet the women who succeed in building a movement that transforms an age-old institution, and challenges the very essence of patriarchy within Christendom
