in an article of this sort which, for lack of information, are omitted.
I recollect, however, one matter of which no mention is made in the records.
It is the kindness of four classes in the school, by whose efforts there have been placed upon the vestry walls five pictures, which have greatly added to its appearance.
Mrs. A. H. Carvill
's class gave the one in the infant class room, Mrs. G. D. Haven
's class that which represents Jesus among the doctors, Mrs. S. W. Fuller
's class the two on the opposite wall, and Mr. A. Hodgman
's class the one of St. Cecilia.
The good example set by these classes should be emulated by others, until our vestry walls are ‘embellished’ by ten or more fine pictures.
Our Sunday School may well take pride in the knowledge that at least five of its members have entered the Universalist ministry: Rev. E. H. Chapin
, Rev. R. A. White
, Rev. Leslie Moore
, Rev. George F. Fortier
, Rev. Gertrude A. Earle
, the latter being one of the first women to graduate from Tufts
Theological School, and be ordained to the Universalist ministry.
The school to-day is modern in every sense.
No effort is spared to make it the leading Universalist Sunday School in the Metropolitan district in training methods, as it already is in numbers.
Stereopticon lectures reviewing the lesson are given several times during the year; a kindergarten class, with a trained teacher at its head, cares for the youngest scholars, while every effort along social lines is made to attract and keep the older scholars interested.
The teachers are given opportunities to hear lectures by expert Sunday School workers, and, in fact, no branch is neglected that will help in any way to aid in the upbuilding of moral characters in the youths of to-day.
The present officers of the school are: Superintendent, A. A. Wyman
, Mrs. G. D. Haven
; secretary, Joseph Mess; assistant secretary
, Mrs. Joseph Mess
; treasurer, Mrs. Robert Hayes
