Among the Churches

Current Notes

Havana Post

Havana, Cuba (First Church).—First Church of Christ, Scientist, Havana, was dedicated by its members on Sunday, December 8, 1940. The regular Spanish and English services were held. The church, according to the practice followed by the denomination, in dedicating is entirely free of debt. This practice was instituted by Mary Baker Eddy, the Leader of the Christian Science movement.

The church edifice, which stands at the corner of Avenida Columbia and Twelfth Street, was completed in the autumn of 1936.

Christian Scientists started working in Havana early in the century. A handful of students organized informally in 1916 to conduct public services. While quarters were changed several times, a building fund to provide for a permanent home for the church was soon started, and in August, 1933, the first part of the present church edifice was built and occupied.
