ty years. On Thursday, June 8, the exercises opened with a Pageant, in which nearly one hundred members of the church and parish took part.
The pageant was the thought and writing of the present pastor, Rev. Henry Francis Smith, and consisted of seven episodes, the first The Incarnation, and the seventh, The Fruit of the Far Flung Years, in which the entire number of participants were gathered.
In the first episode, the Mother of our Lord was seen kneeling beneath the shaded light (by Elizabeth Lowry) while strains of Magnificat came from the choir loft.
Episode 2 was The Great Commission.
The eleven apostles (of Ascension Day) and two men in white were seen silently gazing up into heaven.
Episode 3, The Christian Westward-Ho, brought the audience down the ages, by the presence of the Spirit of Christianity, and of Paul, Gregory the Great, and Augustine and the more visible personalities of Wickliffe, Tyndale and Robert Browne.
Episode 4 was styled An Unfamiliar.
