Former Episcopal Church will celebrate 100 years

The Church of St. Clement made history last year when it left the Episcopal church and Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande.

Now the congregation is looking to another historic event - celebrating the 100th anniversary of the sanctuary.

The church was founded in 1870. In 1908, about 200 parishioners purchased five lots and built the sanctuary now used for worship.

The first service took place Feb. 9, 1908, members say.

The church, which is part of the Anglican Communion Network, will have a jubilee service at 10 a.m. Sunday, followed by a community Renaissance-themed picnic for church members on the athletic field across Yandell Drive. Read more
