St. Andrew's Episcopal Church Celebrates 190th Anniversary

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church marks 190 years in Ann Arbor in 2017. Old News has digitized hundreds of photos and articles beginning with the appointment of Rev. Gillispie to the rectorship in 1861 to a 2009 story of Svea Gray, mainstay of St. Andrew's Breakfast program. Grace Shackman's Then & Now article provides a great overview of the history of the church. The recommendation of Rev. Tatlock in 1895 to provide free pews so that all were welcome at the church foretold the mission of St. Andrew's to be inclusive, supportive and most importantly, a force in the community at large. The 39-year rectorship of Henry Lewis, from 1922 to 1961, embodied this spirit and became a model for all St. Andrew's rectors to follow.

St. Andrew's was a social center for Ann Arborites as well. Their Easter Ball was the "society highlight" of the year, followed closely by their Guild Ball in December. The annual Christmas and Easter fairs raised money for the Church and for their charitable programs. Music remains one of the most noted aspects of St. Andrew's Church. Their choirs, organists, concerts and plays by the St. Andrew's Players remain not-to-be-missed events. The Canterbury House was a place for performance and poetry and protest.

And of course, the building. From any view, inside and outside, whether chapel or vestry, details that have a history of their own. Be sure to include St. Andrew's, 306 N. Division St., on your next walking tour of Ann Arbor. You can also read about the history of St. Andrew's in books at AADL.

Thanks for all the historical photos!

The campus ministry associated with St. Andrew's, Canterbury House, is mentioned in the past tense, but it continues as a home for music, social justice work, and spiritual sustenance -- now a few blocks away, at 721 E. Huron Street. https://www.canterburyhouse.org

I'm really impressed with your writing skills as well as with
the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme
or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it's
rare to see a great blog like this one today.

Hi there excellent website! Does running a blog similar to this
take a great deal of work? I have very little knowledge of coding but I
had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyway, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off subject however I just wanted to ask.

Cheers!
