Grace Episcopal Congregation
Started in Georgetown in 1850
Edifice at 1039 Wisconsin avenue N.W. One of a series or
sketches by Star Artist Leslie Bontz.
By Caspar Nannes
Grace Episcopal Church, George
town, is a constant reminder to
passersby of a period long since
gone.
The church at 1039 Wisconsin
avenue N.W. 1s
situated on a
small hill over
looking the Po
tomac River in
what was once
known as
“Peter's Square ”
The square,
named after the
Peter family of
Georgetown,
consisted of six
large city lots
between the
canal and the
river and Thir
ty-first street *• M- *«*•»»•
and Wisconsin avenue. The hill on
which the church stands was once
known as “Brickyard Hill,” and the
church was called “the Church on
the Hill.”
Initial efforts to start an Epis
copal mission in Georgetown was
marie nhnnt. 1850 hv three vestrv
men of St. John’s Church, George
town. They were Messrs. Ritten
house, Ridgely and Thomas, who
began holding services in private
homes. About a year later a small
frame chapel was erected on the
present church property where to
day a granite cross, placed there
in memory of the World War I
heroes, now stands. The chapel
served as a place of worship and
as a day school during the week.
About 1857 the Rev. Henderson
Suter took charge of the mission
and organized a Sunday school. He
w'as assisted by several students
at the Alexandria Theological Sem
inary serving as lay readers.
The present English Gothic
church, set well back from the street
at the end of a well-kept lawn hav
ing clipped shrubs and beautiful
flowers, was a gift of Gov. Henry
D. Cooke, first governor of the
District and a brother of the finan
cial wizard, Jay Cooke. The cor
nerstone was laid in 1866. The first
service was held Easter Sunday.
1867. The Rev. J. Eastburn Brown,
rector from 1863-70, officiated.
With the coming of the Rev.
Thomas O. Tongue as rector in Jan
uary, 1899, the parish of 300 com
municants became independent.
The work wras increased during the
pastorate of the Rev. George Howell,
who came in 1892. The present rec
tory was built during the rectorship
of the Rev. Obre R. Bourne.
The parish has changed radically
in the years since the turn of the
century. Today factories and busi
ness places occupy situations once
studded with spacious lawns and

comfortable old houses. Many of
the families have moved away, but
large numbers still retain their
membership in Grace Church.
Many of the communicants today,
members of the church from more
than 50 years, link the past and
the present. Mrs. Mary Baker at
86 years of age records 74 of them
as part of the Grace Church family.
Others are Charles T. Baker, hus
band of Mrs. Baker; Mrs. Lula
Balinger, Mrs. Lillian Benton, Mr.
and Mrs. Charles F. Hungtington,
Mrs. Lula King, William A. E.
McShea, Mrs. Emory Nickolson, Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Rabbitt, Mrs. Neva
Scheer, Mrs. Virginia Schutt, Mrs.
Mary Swann and Mrs. Nohre Wehn.
Mr. McShea, a former commis
sioner for Arlington County, served
many years as a vestryman. In the
Sunday school Miss Ruth Turner
and Miss Gladys Turner have been
scholars and teachers for more than
30 years.
Rectors following Mr. Bourne were
the Revs. Kemper Bocock, Edward
D. Johnson, W. M. Pettis, Walter
Williams, George Atkinson, Henry
L. Durrant and William T. Rey
nolds.
The Rev. M. Mills Perkins will ob
serve his 20th anniversary as rector
of the church tomorrow. He came
here upon graduation from the
Episcopal Theological Seminary at
Alexandria, Va. He originally came
in 1919, to work in the Internal
Revenue Bureau, leaving later to
enter the ministry. During the
early years of his pastorate, 1927
31, he served as private secretary
to the late Bishop James E. Free
man.
He is a member of the Washing
ton Federation of Churches and of
the Masons. He has a daughter,
Mrs. Benjamin Jock of Plattsburg,
N. Y., and two sons, Raymond D.
Perkins of Clintonville, N. Y., and
Richard E. Perkins, with the United

Holy Spirit
Changes IJs
! Christianity is more than a creed based upon Scriptures. It
is a divine life in Christ, made possible by the Holy Spirit
through the Word and sacraments. If a man does not have
this spiritual life, he is not a Christian. By nature we are
blind and dead in spirit. We are dependent entirely on the
work of the Holy Spirit for saving faith and the grace to
walk in the way of the Nazarene. We cannot save ourselves,
but even the greatest sinner can be changed by the Lord’s
power.

So Jehovah unleashed the legions
of Assyria upon His renegade peo
ple. They were defeated and dis
placed—carried down into the hot,
flat lands of Mesopotamia, there to
wail out their hopless grief in such
psalms as:
“How can I sing the Lord’s songs
in a strange land?”
We are tragically familiar with
the current spectacle of Europe’s
millions of displaced persons, being
driven across Europe and Siberia.
They should make vivid to us the
spectacle of Israel’s miserable march
down along the river road that
leads to Babylon—the road of Abra
ham and of the Wise Men; the road
of war’s victims throughout the ages,
and now the road of new petroleum
riches: the road that led to the end
of the Hebrew people as a nation.
Israel’s end was directly traceable
to disobedience. Especially as this
disobediences took over the ways of
idolatry. A people take the form of
the gods they worship. No nation
can tolerate sensuality, avarice, op
pression and injustice and continue
to prosper. Except loyalty to God
prevails in our land we shall go the
way of Israel—unless wiped out by
an atomic bomb, which is a real and
near possibility.
Our “intellectual” have wondered
lar irom me simple worsmp ox me
Almight. But the plain people still
adhere to the faith of our fathers.
They are willing to let God be God,
land to walk in the way that Jesus
showed.
Millions are praying daily that
mankind may turn into the clear
path of life that leads over Sinai
and Calvary.
