Communion Service at the Mother Church

The annual Communion service of the Mother Church was observed on Sunday, June 4, 1899. Next to the Mother's visits, this service was the most important event since the dedication of the Mother Church. The occasion was a most inspiring one, and will prove to be memorable in the annals of Christian Science history. The thousands of visiting Scientists coming from all parts of the country—between Maine and California—and a number from England, Australia, and Canada, is strong evidence of the progress being made by the cause of Christian Science in spite of persecution and prosecution.

The most important feature of the service was the Mother's message which is published in full on the first page of the Sentinel. The message was finely read by Mr. John W. Reeder, the First Reader of the branch church at Roxbury, Mass.
