Trinity Sunday May 24, 1964

7:30 p.m. Evening Prayer and Sermon
"Extract from Adin Ballou's History of Milford"

"After organization the church maintained regular religious services in Washington Hall until the erection of its sanctuary, situated on Congress Street, corner of Exchange. The land and edifice were paid for by subscription from members of the parish and congregation and outside friends. It was consecrated with the usual solemnities, March 21, 1871. The services on that occasion were as follows:-"

"Entrance of the Bishop (Rev. Manton Eastburn D.D.) and clergy, repeating the 24th Psalm - The earth is the Lord's and all that therein is etc; reading the Instrument of Donation; exhortation; prayer; sentence of consecration; morning service; proper Psalms and Lessons singing of Psalm 21 in meter verse 2 and 3; ante-Communion Service; the hundredth Psalm; Sermon by the Bishop; prayer; benediction."

At the Service this evening we use the same Psalms, Lessons and Hymns as far as possible.
