Background on Purpose of this Website

This site was created for all of us who - at some point in our faith journey - resided or worshipped  as the Church of the Redeemer, Episcopal in Houston, or within a community which arose from that church including the "Community of Celebration" sites in UK & US, or at "Post Green": an existing UK community that partnered with Celebration in the mid-1970s. 

The website is intended to become a growing archive of photos and stories about our life together over the decades from mid-60s until now. It was launched at a time when Redeemer's congregation learned that it had to move out of buildings that had been their spiritual home base for over half-a-century; and when the "Community of Celebration" in Aliquippa are now taking in no new permanent members. We collect all these photos and stories of shared memories not only for each other, but also for our friends and relatives, especially for our kids and grand-kids.

"Celebration" in Aliquippa, PA are an Episcopalian religious order, observing a Benedictine rule of life: origin was in the Anglican church in UK & Scotland. Click here to buy their music.
