mer'3 Work Which May Affect
Rod: Island may Iobo one of its
most popu'.ar and EucotBeful pastors.
Iter. Granville Hudson Sherwood, rec
tor of Trinity Episcopal church, haa
announced to Ms vestry, though with
out having made a decision to accept,
a call to the Church of the Epiphany, j
Chicago. The invitation Is accom
panied by the offer of a substantial In
crease In salary over what he receives
In Itock Island, and the field Is one
that rcquirts hard work.
Tl.a Chicago church, wh'ch la locat
ed at Adams street and Ashland boule
vard, on the west side. Is one of the
bfHt known in Chicago and the call Is
h'gnly eomplim'.ntary to the local
priest. The church was built years
ago by lit Rev. T. N. Morrison, the
present Episcopal bishop of Iowa, and
for 20 years Dr. Morrison was Its
II iS M ADFD FIR HfTORD.
Mr. Sherwood came to Rock Island
b v( ral years ago from Streator and
has made a remarkable record during
h s pastorate at Trinity. Under h!s
ministrations tie parish has grown as
it never did before. It was under Lis
direction that the Men's club was es
tablished and the new parish house
and chapel built. As a churchman he
enjoys the love of his people, while be
is a brilliant pulpit orator and Is Im
mensely popular with the people in
rcneral in Rock Island, and deep and
sincere regret would attend his de
parture from the city should he con
clude to consider the proposition fa
vorably. Mr. Sherwood will leave shortly
to take up cupply work la Boston,
Mass., to relieve a pastor la that olty,
this by a prior arrangement which
may enter l'.to his decision relative'
to the Chicago call.
