This week I am visiting my family in the little Eastern Shore town of Vienna, Md. The Episcopal church there, Saint Paul’s parish, (Diocese of Easton) is celebrating its 300th anniversary. A new guild hall was finished and dedicated last year. More photos on Sunday morning . To visit St. Paul’s parish website, click on this link http://stpaulsviennamd.org/
The Diocese of Easton occupies more than one-third of the geographical territory of Maryland. Originally an isolated section of the Diocese of Maryland, it became its own diocese in 1868. It shares the Delmarva Peninsula with the entire state of Delaware and a small part of Virginia. Easton, the see city, is located centrally in Talbot County. The Diocese is comprised of about 9,750 members and 70 clergy in 39 worshipping communities.
