Installation at Holy Apostles in Elizabethtown

Sorry it's taken so long to post the video.

Installation of Fr. Chris Larimer from Fr. Chris Larimer on Vimeo.

This is my installation as rector of Holy Apostles Anglican Church in Elizabethtown, KY. The officiant was the Right Reverend John A. M. Guernsey, Bishop of the Diocese of the Holy Spirit (Anglican Church in North America).

Unfortunately, we ran out of memory just after the Gospel, so you missed out on his sermon. But you don't have to miss out on anything else! Worship with us at 10AM on the Public Square.

Okay...I'm back

Sorry to have been gone so long, folks. As you saw from my last post, I am recently installed as rector at Holy Apostles in Elizabethtown, KY. There's tons of work to do in setting things up. I've already been to a clergy leadership retreat. We've added several new ministries to our social outreach, and we've added mid-week services. I've been pretty tied up.

Did I mention that I live approximately 45 minutes away...and am busy renovating / staging my house for sale? So the blog hasn't gotten a lot of attention.

One thing that hasn't been neglected is the ministry of the w0rd. I've posted several sermons on Vimeo. You can access them here. (

Also, today I am 35. My grandparents were both dead by 72 - so it's possible that this is my mid-life. Daunting as that may be, I am so grateful for the journey God has granted me. There is such a sense of completeness in our whole family's life now that I am living out (in a much fuller sense) my call to serve as a presbyter in Christ's Church.
