Communion Service

According to announcement, the annual Communion service of the Mother Church was observed Sunday, June 23. Notwithstanding the fact that the Sentinel of the week before contained the announcement that the service would be held on July 7, the attendance was as large as on any previous occasion, the estimate being that there were not less than eight thousand at the four services. Doubtless there would have been a much larger attendance but for the change of notice and the shortness of the time.

It was announced originally that there would be three services held, one beginning at 9 A.M., another at 12 M., another at 3 P.M. It soon became apparent, however, that these three services would not suffice to accommodate all who desired to attend. Therefore, at the noon service it was announced that there would be another service held at 7 P.M.

At the first three services the auditorium was filled to its utmost capacity, and at the last service, at seven o'clock, there were perhaps two hundred persons standing.
