Yavapai County EARLY CHURCHES

Episcopal Church

 

DEVOTED TO SACRED USE

The Episcopal church building was consecrated yesterday, by the Right Rev. J. M. Kendrick, who also made his annual visitation.  The new name, by which the congregation in Prescott will be known in future, is St. Luke.  The ceremony of consecration was witnessed by a large congregation.  When the procession of laity and clergy had reached the sanctuary railings, the laity remained outside the railing, standing in a line.  The bishop and priest passed into the sanctuary, and the bishop occupying his chair in front of the altar, heard the request for consecration to the priest, in charge who read it to the congregation in a loud voice.  A benediction closed this impressive service. The Bishop confirmed in the evening, the following: Roland and Elwyn Seaton, Raymond Belcher, Alfred Gale, Marion Jenkins and Marguerite Shill.

Miss M. Gale sang the earnest devotion, “The Peace of God,” as an offertory anthem
