The Catalina Islander

Avalon, Santa Catalina Islands, California (Society).—Three beautiful services marked the formal opening of the new church edifice of the Christian Science Society of Avalon, located on the sightly knoll at 209 East Whittley Avenue. The chapel was designed to accommodate two hundred persons. Simplicity and dignity are the keynote in the beauty of the architecture of the new church. The chapel is on the upper terrace, from which an inspiring view of Avalon Bay and the island itself is The Sunday school room and Reading Room are on the ground floor. The entire building is of brick and red tile; the wall white, with natural red brick trim, and the window casings and doors a blue-green. A stone stair with wrought iron rail leads to the upper terrace. Palms in colored glazed pots on the upper terrace are silhouetted against the building. A soft buff lends restful atmosphere to the interior of the church.
