Activities for the Armed Services

In this column under date of November 10, 1956, an account was given of Christian Science activities at the United States Military Academy, West Point, New York. Since that time there has been further progress.

With the permission of the military authorities at the Academy, a Christian Science Minister for the Armed Services has continued his regular visits to help cadets and members of the Academy staff who are Christian Scientists. On Sundays the Minister conducts Christian Science services and holds an informal Sunday School. The Christian Science college organization at the Academy conducts testimony meetings and sponsors a Christian Science lecture each year.

All authorized Christian Science literature, including current periodicals, are available at the post library. Monday through Friday mornings at seven o'clock in a conveniently located building there is a Christian Science study hour, which has been arranged through the co-operation of the military authorities to provide a quiet place for cadets to read the Lesson-sermon, found in the Christian Science Quarterly. Armed Services Activities is grateful for the consideration shown by the Academy for the Christian Scientists there.
