Important Notice to All Members of The Mother Church


Because we know that members make plans to attend Annual Meeting well in advance, we wish to bring to their attention at this early date the fact that there will be no special or workshop meetings at the time of the 1971 Annual Meeting. The only meeting will be the Annual Meeting itself on June 7, at 2 p.m.

Regarding the Annual Meeting we have the directive in the Manual of The Mother Church, where Mary Baker Eddy states that "no other than its officers are required to be present. These assemblies shall be for listening to the reports of Treasurer, Clerk, and Committees, and general reports from the Field" (Art. XIII, Sect. 1). In the spirit of that By-Law, we are requesting our members to consider the need of devoting the time and efforts which they might ordinarily give to coming to Annual Meeting in 1971 to further the completion of the Christian Science Church Center. Much still needs to be accomplished before that project is finished, and the prayerful support of our members in this way can forward it greatly.
