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.

Join us for our annual parish Shrove Tuesday pancake supper in the Parish House! Enjoy some delicious pancakes, bacon, sausage, and more as we get ready to start the season of Lent the next day on Ash Wednesday. 

This dinner comes from the tradition of some delicious indulgences prior to the fasting during the season of Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday.

We will offer three services of Eucharist with the Imposition of Ashes. First, at 9:00am in the Tower Chapel, second at 12:00pm in the Church, and at 7:00pm in the Church with sung Eucharist with the choir. 

Begin your season of Lent with us at Christ Church. 


Annual Mothering Sunday Brunch

Third Sunday in Lent, March 3rd, 11:00am

After the 10:00am Eucharist Service.

The Sunday of Mothering Sunday means that we are halfway there to Easter! Join us for the Mothering Sunday Mid-Lent brunch that doesn’t count for Lent. That means you can put your Lenten fast on hold and indulge! Mark your calendars and please join us for fellowship, food and fun.

If you would like to attend and/or contribute a food item for the brunch a Sign-up sheet will be available in the back of the church. If you have any questions, please contact Arlene Blocker at


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.’
