Christ the Redeemer Episcopal Church Reorganizes in Montgomery


By Alabama News Network

Christ the Redeemer Episcopal was without a place to worship for six and half years, but has now opened back up.

After spendinga year and half writing letters to the Episcopal Bishop in Birmingham, well-known Montgomery attorney Julian McPhillips finally convinced the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama to allow the group to reconstitute.

In January 2007, Bishop Henry Parsley declared Christ the Redeemer "dormant."

McPhillips said, "I can't tell you how satisfying it is. I just felt like an invisible hand was pushing me all along and I never had any tension about it."

McPhillips will serve as lay pastor and Reverand James Muriuki will double as the priest and conduct weekly communion services on Sunday evenings.
