Tte Molina Dispatch, speakiog ot tbe
visit of Bishop Burgess, of the Episcopal
diocese of Qjincj, to Moline Wednesday
afternoon, says, the bishop, accompanied
by Rector Sweet, of Trinity church, met
a number of Moline Episcopalians at the
residence of A. R. Bryant on Seven
tee nth street:
The attendance on the meeting was
about 15 persons, mostly ladies, as was
sure to be the case at an afternoon meet
ing. A list had been prepared, however,
showing Episcopalians in at least 33
families and with a minimum of 54 com
municants. This, Bishop Burgess thought,
was a very good showing, and sufficient
to warrant arrangement for the holding
of regular services. lie advised the for
mation of a congregation, rather than of
a mission or a parish as best suited to
the needs ot a small society getting a
start. Tbe bishop had in mind
1 a rector whose services could be
obtaioed at a very reasonable salary; and
to give the society a &Mrt the diocese
would pav the portion of the expense that
could not be raised here. lie thought the
outlook was very good for a thriving con
gregation, which would quickly grow to
bj self -sustaining and capable of putting
up a church.
A societv was organized bv the election
of Mrs. A E. Ljford as president, and Mrs.
C. J. Cooper as secretary. It was decided
to holJ another meeting at the Business
association roms at 7:3 J Saturday even
ing, which the gentlemen as well as the
ladies can attend. To this meeting all
who are interested in tbe organization cf
an Episcopal church in Moline are invited.
It is understood tttat tha Business asso
ciation room cn be secured for tiie hold
ing of services to begin with.
