Happy Eastertide! This month’s announcement is bitter sweet. I’ll start with the sweet though! The sweet news is that we have now completely recreated half of Laxmipura’s huts. As you can see…the completed product can no longer even be classified as a hut. These families now have a home. The bitter news is that we have had to put a halt on construction for a little while. The virus situation in India has caused many local governments to issue lockdown orders. Kota is one such city. As soon as it is both legal and safe to continue, we will be back at it full force. Please keep India in your thoughts and prayers. Another exciting announcement I’d like to draw your attention to is our recent saree distribution (a saree is the traditional dress for women in India). Thanks to a generous donation, each of the ladies of Laxmipura received a beautiful saree. Thank you for your continued support of this endeavor!

Glory to Christ,

Christ Anglican Church in Carefree, Arizona began as an outreach from the clergy of Saint Nicholas Anglican Church in Scottsdale, Arizona in July of 1997. We are a founding member of the Diocese of the Southwestern States in the Anglican Province of Christ the King. For the love of God and to glorify His Son Jesus Christ, the charter members of Christ Church Parish gave sacrificially to buy property, erect an altar and build a Church that was consecrated on the Feast of Christ the King in 1999. This is the sacred ground where the faithful regularly proclaim God’s truth through Catholic order as it is embodied in the historic Book of Common Prayer, where they hear the Gospel and receive the Holy Sacraments.
