TO SACRED USE
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

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

Raymond Belcher, Alfred Gale, Marion Jenkins and Marguerite Shill.
M. Gale sang the earnest devotion, “The Peace of God,” as an
