OUR MISSION

To Know Christ, and to Make Christ Known

Christ Church Welcomes The Rev. Katherine Mansfield

We’re excited to announce that the Christ Church staff will soon be joined by The Rev. Katherine Mansfield. She’ll begin her work with us on July 1st as an Associate Priest and curate.  A curacy is a two-year period in which a priest, in their first post-seminary position, works closely with another priest who acts in both an advisory and supervisory role.

Rev. Katherine is a native of Carthage, MO, and was active there at Grace Episcopal Church as a youth.  She is very passionate about extending the Good News of Christ to young people.  Our hope is that through Rev. Katherine's ministry Christ Church can minister to and with groups of people that, without her, we are hard-pressed to be able to do consistently.

We’ll gather as a parish to welcome Rev. Katherine and to celebrate her ministry in our midst sometime in late July.  We’ll keep you posted as that opportunity develops.

The Rev. Joe Behen

Rector
