Rector of St. Stephen’s Epis
copal Church Tenders
His Resignation
TOTTENVILL.E. Dec. 1*:—Rev.
Andrew Harper, rector of St. Steph
Icn's Episcopal church, has resigned
Ills charge to take effect the first of
the year. The resignation was read
from the pulpit Sunday morning by
L Rev. W. Northey Jones, rector of
' Bt. Peter's church, Perth Amboy,
who had been asked by the Rev. Mr.
Harper to take charge of the service.
Although the resignation came as a
surprise to many of the members
of the church there were a number
who were aware of the fact of the
rector's sudden termination of his
labors within the parish.
Rev. Mr. Harper was not at the
service Sunday morning, he having
exchanged with the Rev. Mr. Jones
for that service and at night he ex
changed with Rev. Mr. Bruen, of
^ Keyport.
U A special meeting of the vestry of
w the church was held last night at
which time the resignation of Rev.
Mr. Harper was formally accepted.
Gilbert S. Barnes, president of the
vestry, was in the chair and James
A. Simonson was the clerk. The
other members were in their places.
Rev. Mr. Harper has been at St.
Stephen's for about a year and a
half, having assumed charge of the
parish on July 1. 1920. He came
here from Red Hook, N. Y., and suc
ceeded the late Rev. English Crooks,
who had been rector of the church
for some time. Since coming here
the church and Sunday school had
grown considerable and the church
was in a prosperous condition. A
new parish house is about to be
erected and thlB is to be used for the
Sunday school because of the large
number of scholars now attending^
