CPC Sunday is this Sunday, May 17
The Church Periodical Club was founded in 1888 by Mary Ann Fargo and a small group of women in the Parish Church of the Holy Communion in New York City. They began by sending bundles of church periodicals, prayer books, and Bibles via the Wells Fargo Stage Coach Line to clergy and laity, missionaries, and Indians in the Dakotas, and the "far west." The commitment to supply theological and educational texts, audio and video tapes, and computer software has continued for over 100 years to promote religious and secular needs throughout the Anglican Communion. Please put "CPC Sunday" in the memo box of your check or online donation.
Read the latest from the Strategic Planning Committee, here, including some background links in preparation for the Town Hall meetings.
