Sharing photos and videos of parishioners and events at St Christopher Parish is a privilege for us, and we intend to respect and honor it. In our current digital age, the church takes many pictures of many different events and activities. We use these pictures to record, to promote, and to celebrate our church ministries. Pictures are used online and occasionally in a variety of printed publications. Online sharing of pictures and videos include church newsletters (online version), parish website, Facebook page, and may include other social media platforms.
