Fr. Kirby and Fr. Stamm will alternate celebrating Eucharist at Noon on Wednesdays beginning on April 7th in the Chapel.

All current Covid-19 guidelines will continue to be in effect (contact tracing, masks required and social distancing). 

William “Bill” A. Bingham, age 93 of Eau Claire passed away Sunday, April 4, 2021 at his residence at Heatherwood Assisted Living & Memory Care in Eau Claire.

William was born in Eau Claire, WI on May 29, 1927 to Dr. R. W. Bingham and Anna K. (Knobel) Bingham. He passed away on April 4, 2021 at Heatherwood Assisted Living in Eau Claire. He attended the Third Ward School and graduated from Eau Claire High school class of 1945 with honors. He went on to attend UW Madison and graduated in 1949 with degrees in Philosophy and Political Science. While in college he developed a great love of sailing which continued for the rest of his life.

After graduation he came back to Eau Claire and worked in real estate for Cox Realty, eventually becoming Bingham Realty. Bill enjoyed the Real Estate business, remembering everyone whom he sold a house to and many remembering him. He was best known for his sense of humor, great stories, quick wit, and his ability to make people smile. He had a special fondness for dogs, somehow always managing to find four legged friends wherever he went.

Bill’s love of sailing, in his later years, became a zest for travel. He made many trips to England and Switzerland with dear friends and relatives in both places. His favorite thing to do was don a pair of hiking boots and hike with friends in the mountains of Switzerland. He often said his heart was in the Alps. Bill was a lifelong member of Christ Church Cathedral and will be greatly missed by many both here and abroad.

Funeral service will take place at 11 am on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at Christ Church Cathedral, 510 S. Farwell Street, Eau Claire, WI 54701. The Very Rev. H. Scott Kirby will officiate. Visitation will take place at the church Tuesday morning, April 13, 2021 from 9:30 am until the time of service. Burial will take place immediately following the funeral service in Forest Hill Cemetery in Eau Claire. Due to the pandemic, face masks and social distancing will be required.

Hulke Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 3209 Rudolph Road, Eau Claire, WI 54701 is assisting the family with the arrangements.

Many of our parishioners have not been able to access the Sacrament for over a year now. Our Deacons have proposed a system where individuals or couples or families could have a private communion by appointment. It would be an abbreviated service, about fifteen minutes, and you would receive the Sacrament in both forms. Please contact the church office if you are interested and we can get your appointment scheduled.

The Non Food Pantry is in desperate need of (minimum) 2 utility carts about 36" long and 18" wide with 2 or more shelves to add to our pantry inventory. We use carts to transport 50 bags of pantry items from the basement to the driveway every pantry day. I am hesitant to use pantry donations toward the carts unless donated for this specific purpose. Please help us with this purchase if you feel able!

Singing Rooster CoffeeRight before the pandemic hit, we purchased our regular order of Singing Rooster Coffee, Fair Trade coffee grown in Haiti. Since we are currently not having coffee hour, we would like to make it available to you to purchase. The sales have been going so well that we now only have ground decaf remaining. The cost is $10.00 for a 12 ounce bag. 

We will continue to support this organization and look forward to a day when we can once again enjoy coffee hour, physically together, safely! 

All proceeds will be donated to The Haiti Project.
