Christ Church, Morristown, was formed in 1830 and incorporated July 6, 1846. The church edifice was erected in 1833 with a membership of around 40. Christ Church continued into the 1960’s, at which time it was reduced to only occasional services, contingent on the availability of a priest. It was on July 4th, 1976 (marking the Bi-Centennial) that Fr. Dan Herzog (now Bishop Dan – retired) held the first of regular services, later assuming the parish rectorship. Known for its Anglo-Catholic/Evangelical/Charismatic worship and parish life, Christ Church was at the forefront of Charismatic Renewal and the Cursillo movement in the Albany Diocese. The parish continues under its current rector, Fr. Ed LaCombe, along with a vibrant, welcoming congregation.
