Parish Profile

  • Parish Profile

    One of the first major projects of the search process was to create a Parish Profile that would inform Rector candidates who we are, how we have arrived at this point in time and what strengths we are looking for in our next Rector. The use of the four symbols in our Parish Logo creates a genuine uniqueness for our Profile. This is an updatable document that will become part of our long and storied history. The creation of this Profile drew on the multiple talents of the entire Search Committee. Spearheaded by the creative and editing talents of Helene Sedwick, we progressed through 17 editions of the Profile. Andrew Cole then did a fantastic job of incorporating meaningful photographs in the final formatting process. We hope you enjoy this document.

Results of the Parish Survey are available in the office.

Our mission

  • Who Are We?

    The mission of Christ Church Glendale is to reach out warmly to all people, worship passionately, nurture our community and encourage spiritual growth in order to reconcile ourselves to God and each other in Christ.

  • The Parish

    For over 140 years, people have been worshipping in these historic buildings. Today, we are a diverse community, bound together in Christ, celebrating our unity through our corporate worship and service. We come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds within the Christian faith.

    We draw our members from many communities throughout Greater Cincinnati.

  • Diocese

    We are a parish in the Diocese of Southern Ohio of the Episcopal Church.

  • Sunday Services

    8:00 a.m. - It is a quiet and reflective worship, with no music, lasting about 40 minutes. This service uses the Holy Eucharist Rite I from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. This liturgy retains much of the ancient and beautiful language from the First English Prayer Book, published in 1549. Held in our beautiful neo-Gothic church, it is a quiet and reflective service, with no music, lasting about 40 minutes.

    The setting for the 9:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist is the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, on the lower level of our building. This beautiful and flexible place is contemporary in architecture and filled with light. The less formal language and non-traditional liturgy (with elements from many Christian traditions) fit well here. The Schola Cantorum, our children’s choir, offers a weekly anthem and supports the singing of hymns and service music during the program year. There is continuing evolution of this liturgy, centered on the Eucharist, as the space was completed in Spring, 2014, and a new pipe organ is being built here in Autumn, 2015. This relaxed service follows the basic “rule of thumb” to stand for prayer and song, and sit to listen. Participation by all is the norm, even to baking the homemade bread for communion. Generally about 50 minutes in duration.

    The 11:00 a.m. celebration of Holy Eucharist is held in the church, a beautiful and historic place built in 1868 and surrounded by stained glass portrayals of events in the life of Jesus. This traditional service includes hymns and music with our volunteer adult choir, processions, acolytes and sermon, using either the more traditional Rite I, or the updated Rite II from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. It is generally about one hour in duration.

  • New Visitors

    Welcome to Christ Church Glendale. We are a church of deep roots and growing faith. An Episcopal Chuch born from the Church of England, we are steeped in its rich theological and liturgical tradition. It is from these roots that our faith and its expression continues to grow.

    As you browse through this web site, you will discover the many ways that we worship, work and play together. In so doing, we fulfill our mission of serving God and each other both within our parish and in the larger community. Wherever you may be on your spiritual journey, we will meet you. If you wish, we will provide you with opportunities to become involved in the life of our parish. Your greatest gift to us, and perhaps ours to you, is to join together in worship. It is a good place to begin. If you have any questions about our parish, our worship or our ministries please feel free to e-mail or call and we will be happy to answer them.

    See you in church

  • Commissions

    The commissions of Christ Church Glendale act as an extension of the Vestry, focusing on one of a number of different areas, such as Worship, Outreach, and Stewardship. Some of the Commissions are composed of multiple sub-committees and focused teams, such as the Altar Guild.

Announcement concerning our next Rector

The following announcement was made at all three worship services this past Sunday, February 7th. The Wardens are very pleased to inform you that the Vestry met in a Special Meeting on Saturday, February 6th, to receive the recommendation for our next Rector from the Search Committee. An election was made by the Vestry and, with the Bishop's blessing, the Wardens have extended a call to the Rector Elect. That call has been accepted, subject to the usual agreement on terms in the Letter of Agreement. This is a major step in our journey. The appropriate people are working on the Letter of Agreement, as well as the identification of the starting date and a mutual announcement date at both of the congregations affected. Once all details have been finalized, further information will be provided. Please join the Wardens in giving deep thanks to our very hard-working Search Committee and in continued prayers for all of us as we continue to Live Our Vision in these exciting times of transition.

A new relationship for Christ Church Glendale

On Sundays we pray for Barbara Rugen and her husband Steve Link as they serve with the Peace Corps in Namibia (just north of South Africa). Continents and hours away, Barbara is worshiping at St. Augustine Anglican Church in their small town of Keetmanshoop. The church was built after the English drove the Germans out following World War I. A few months ago, Barbara wrote to ask if there was anything Christ Church Glendale could do to help this parish. “Our Anglican church is too poor to afford a priest, and while we manage with two lay priests – a nurse and a cleaning woman with a 5th-grade education – we can’t have baptisms, weddings, funerals or any other services normally requiring a priest. The congregation is about 200 strong, but most are dirt poor.” Barbara added that the priest from the nearest Anglican Church (220 miles away) would come for 100 Namibian dollars per service. At the current exchange rate this would allow for about 11 services a year. Twice that amount would give them a reserve fund. Peace Corps volunteers are not permitted to make such donations. After considering the request, CCG’s Outreach Commission decided to grant it. Meanwhile, Barbara, concerned that there might not be enough Anglican priests to visit, spoke with the Archdeacon. He assured her that St. Augustine would get its share of newly ordained priests. Between visits, the congregation can access sermons posted on the website of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa. In her thank you note, Barbara wrote that CCG has, ”revitalized St. Augustine’s communion with the Anglican Church and established communion with a new sister church across the world in Cincinnati.”
