Celebrating a Musical Legacy at Christ Church

Celebrating 40 Years of Musical Ministry

As the leaders of our renowned music program, Joe and Debbie Mello have provided exemplary service to Christ Church and the surrounding region for 40 years.  On January 19, 2019 (exactly 40 years since the Mellos first graced our parish), we held a celebration in their honor at Christ Church, featuring a catered dinner, presentations and memories.
