The chaplain, Canon Patrick Curran, also serves the daughter communities in Klagenfurt, Ljubljana and Zagreb. Fr Patrick is assisted by Fr Mike Waltner, the Assistant Curate, and the Revd Dr Robert Kinney, who assists as parish deacon. One of the parish interns on our Church of England intern scheme (CEMES), Philip Milton, is also on placement at Christ Church.
On Good Friday, Christ Church hosted an annual service for English speaking Christians of all traditions in the city. Clergy and lay leaders from the Methodist, Roman Catholic, Community Church, and the Church of Sweden came together for a one hour service of meditation on the final moments of Jesus's life. This service was in addition to the full round of the liturgies of the Sacred Triduum, from Maundy Thursday to Easter Day, which I was privileged this year to take part in with the faithful at Christ Church.
