ANNUAL COMMUNION IN THE MOTHER CHURCH

Boston Globe

About ten thousand Christian Scientists attended the two Communion services held yesterday [June 14] in The First Church of Christ, Scientist; about six thousand were at the forenoon service, and four thousand in the afternoon. At both services Judge Septimus J. Hanna read an address to Mrs. Eddy, which was approved by a rising vote of the congregation. A Committee took this address to Mrs. Eddy at her home at Chestnut Hill.

There is no doubt that many more Christian Scientists would have been present at the services had it not been decided some time ago to hold a triennial Communion service for the benefit of those members of The Mother Church who live at points distant from Boston. These triennial services will be the big events of The Mother Church in the future, and will attract Christian Scientists from all over the world. However, a great number of Christian Scientists came from far-distant places to attend the services yesterday.
