Christ Church Parish is opening its campus to visitors and friends. We have a large garden, inclusive of a cloister, benches, an olive grove, a network of paths for walking meditation, and a labyrinth. Whoever you are, we welcome you for a time of refreshment.
A portion of our garden is available for developing specific projects that can benefit the community. Are you interested in composting? Do you want to participate in growing organic vegetables for the hungry? Do you need a space for meeting with your organization?
We have designed a flexible space which can accommodate different activities: patios, lawns, and halls for dinner parties, areas for silence and contemplation, as well as classrooms for courses mostly focused on spirituality and ecological living.
INAUGURATION DATE: October 16, 2021
It will be possible for the public to access Rebecca's Garden starting in mid-September 2021, hours TBA.
We are located in the city of Ontario, California, at 1127N San Antonio Avenue.
Rebecca Rollins (1951-2010) was the esteemed organist and a beloved members of the episcopal congregation of Christ Church, Ontario.
In the early 2000s she started a garden in the large vacant portion of the church property that has now been named after her.
In honoring her name, the congregation pledges to take to heart the values of hospitality and compassion by which she was animated.
Our "Rebecca's Garden" is the outward expression of a larger vision of hospitality and compassion which animates the Center for Ecological Spirituality, located as well on the premises. The online and in-person programs of the Center can be found at:
