St. Andrew’s celebrates 120th anniversary

Roswell and Chaves County have proclaimed today St. Andrew’s Day.

This celebrates the 120th anniversary of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church on North Pennsylvania Avenue and Fifth Street.

The Roswell Daily Record reports it all began in 1891 when the Skipwiths wrote to a bishop.

They asked the bishop to establish a mission quickly. He made it happen three years later.

In honor of St. Andrews Day, the church has decided to hold a reception and dinner.
