Meet our Rector
Hi, I am Mother Susan Champion, a priest in the Episcopal Church, and the rector of Christ the Lord Church. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome at Christ the Lord Church. We are a diverse group of people, including singles and families, Latinos, African-Americans, Filipinos, Anglos, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and people of all ages. We celebrate diversity here and give thanks for the many different backgrounds and perspectives we represent.
Although we are not all the same, we understand ourselves to be followers of Jesus who support one another through the joys, daily stresses, and major challenges of life, always striving to share the love of Christ with one another and with the world. Our church building is a former Portuguese dance hall, and I like to think of us as dancing through life together with Jesus always by our side.
In case you want to know a little more about me, I graduated from Brown University with a major in English and Italian literature. I have been a priest in the Episcopal Church for more than 20 years, and I’ve been the vicar (to start) and now rector at Christ the Lord Church since the end of 2006. I love this church community and love living in the East Bay! My husband, Peter, is also an Episcopal priest who currently serves as Interim Rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Benicia. We have two grown daughters, Laura and Tara, who live in the Pacific Northwest so we love going up there to visit them and their families. I also love
