New Parish Hall For Bethany Beach Church

New Parish Hall For Bethany Beach Church

From Delaware-

"Let the doors be opened. Peace be to this house, and to all who enter here."

With those words on Sunday, the Rt. Rev. Wayne Wright of Wilmington, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware, officially consecrated and dedicated the new parish hall at St. Martha's Episcopal Church on Pennsylvania Avenue.

A crowd of parishioners led by the parish's rector, the Rev. Mary Louise Allen, gathered outside the new hall in the clear morning sunlight to pray and participate in the dedication.

Wright marked the threshold of the new building with his pastoral staff and the sign of the cross. The members then joined the bishop in a procession that moved inside to bless the new rooms.
