New Castle Preacher Has an Odd Reason for Resigning

New Castle - The Rev. Dr. John E. Reilley, rector of Trinity Episcopal church, has tendered his resignation, believing his congregation is not able to pay the salary he receives, since it also has to pay for a $60,000 church building. He thinks another rector at lower salary would do equally good work.

His church does not agree with this view, and will try to have him remain.
