Church ordains the Rev. Jennifer McCracken

Former parishioner Jennifer McCracken was ordained on January 27 at the Cathedral of St. Paul in Boston. It was a glorious and joyful occasion for Jennifer and family and friends, including many from Christ Church.  The congregation included those whom she pastors at the MANNA community and at St. Michael’s in Milton.  The chasuble Jennifer wore on the occasion is a gift from members of the MANNA community … and many hands contributed to creating it!!!

The Rev. Jennifer McCracken, who has been the head pastor to the MANNA community for the past two years, will assume leadership of the MANNA team starting in mid-June and will move to full-time status on the cathedral staff.
