Welcome to Christ Church!
The Rev. Andrew Van CulinAs the newly installed rector of Christ Church, I am delighted to be the newest member of this very special parish. There are so many great people who make up this parish family. I look forward to the good things that we will do together to further God's kingdom in Grosse Pointe and the community that surrounds us.

As you explore our site, I think you will find that at the heart of Christ Church is a desire to bring glory to God through dynamic worship services, challenging and formative educational opportunities, and amazing acts of service that touch the lives of those in the parish family and in the metro-Detroit area.

On behalf of all the members of Christ Church, I invite you to join us for one of our weekend worship services. You will find meaningful liturgy, relevant messages, and choral music second to none. I am confident that you will find yourself grateful for the warm hospitality and welcoming spirit that makes Christ Church such a remarkable place to worship and family-like community in which to participate. And when you visit, please take a moment to introduce yourself to me. I would be delighted to meet you in person.

With Gratitude,

The Rev. Andrew Van Culin

SOS to all needlepoint stitchers! Did you know that each boy and girl singing in the Christ Church Choirs has a hand-stitched patch on the blazer of their choir uniform? A patch is given to each chorister when they are officially admitted into the choir in June. We are running out of patches and stitchers and we need your help! If you are interested in stitching a patch or two (or five!), please contact Scott Hanoian right away. All materials, directions, charts and finishing are provided for you and each patch takes approximately 15 hours to stitch. Please help to keep this glorious tradition alive for years to come!

Acolytes Wanted Girls and boys (4th grade and above); and adults needed! To volunteer, please contact Ted Hagan at 248.755.1655 or

Memorials A great way to give thanks for our loved ones is to make an altar flower contribution in their name. The suggested contribution is $60. Contact Maryann DeAngelo to schedule a memorial.

Reserving Space for an Event In an effort to ensure that events are planned well in advance, and to eliminate scheduling conflicts, requests for room reservations must be received at least 21 days in advance of the event. Submitted forms are reviewed at the weekly staff meeting. You will be notified within 24 hours after a decision has been made. You can complete a "green" sheet HERE.
