[Extracts from semi-annual report of the Christian Science Committee for State Institutions and Agencies in New Jersey]

The Committee as at present...

The Committee as at present constituted was formed in accordance with a resolution adopted at a meeting of representatives from the churches and societies held in First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Plainfield. This meeting was called in accordance with Section 1 of Article XXIII of the Manual of The Mother Church.

The Christian Science activities in penal institutions in this state are carried on by the churches and societies located nearest the respective institutions. The work in one state institution is carried on alternately by workers from seven of the churches. In another institution there are four churches actively participating.

In New Jersey the plan of having a state committee working in co-operation with the local committees has been found satisfactory.

Groups of workers appointed by their respective branch churches and societies are conducting Christian Science services each Sunday in five state penal and reformatory institutions with gratifying success.
