Looking to hear some darker - but all true! - stories? Meet fallen angels and helpless victims on this walking tour through Christ Church Cemetery. Attendees will tour the ancient cemetery with their spirit guide, visiting the final resting places of Manhasset's notable and not-so notable residents. You will walk amongst the dead in burying grounds over 200 years old and hear stories of those mortal remains that lie beneath your feet as their spirits rise for the occasion and are dying to share their true, yet often dark, tales. 

If you'd like to volunteer at this event please reach out to the Parish Office.

Saturday September 30, 2023

12:30p.m. - 4:00pm

Join us for our annual Historic Cemetery Tour on September 30! Thank you to our sponsors for this year’s tour.

Tickets available at the gate.


Since 2019, the Christ Church Historic Cemetery Tour brings to life with volunteer re-enactors the people who once lived and worked in Manhasset and the surrounding communities. These people were important to our community and have wonderful stories to be shared. From a Society Lady to a Farmer, a Doctor to a Whippersnapper. Their last names are still mentioned in our everyday life; Sands (Sands Point), Onderdonk (Onderdonk Avenue), Hewlett (Hewlett Harbor) and many more. Every cemetery in a community has a story to tell and this tour tells you our story.


Join from 12:30pm - 4:00pm for 45-50min tours of our historic Christ Church Cemetery.

Lent Lessons & Carols

The Fourth Sunday in Lent , March 10th, 4:00pm

followed by Parish Dinner in the Parish Hall.

Join us for our annual offering of Lessons & Carols for The Season of Lent at Christ Church. This service will be sung by our Christ Church Choir in conjunction with the St. John's of Lattingtown Choral Scholars.

The service of Lessons & Carols, built largely upon ancient models, was revived in 1880 by Archbishop Benson for use at Truro Cathedral. Lessons and Carols has been firmly established as a preparation for Christmas by its use at King’s College, Cambridge. This evening’s service for Lent has been adapted from that service. Wherever the service is heard, and however it is adapted, the pattern and strength of the service, as the Very Reverend Eric Milner-White, former Dean at King’s pointed out, derives from the lessons and not the music. “The main theme is the development of the loving purposes of God…seen through the windows and words of the Bible.” The center of the service is still found by those who ‘go in hearts and minds to Jerusalem and who consent to follow where the story leads. Then they may see revealed the God who is among us — and worship.’
