St. Matthew's and St. Joseph's Episcopal Church [series]

The third series, St. Matthew's and St. Joseph's Episcopal Church, contains the records of the churches merged together. This series dates from 1970 to 1997, and measures approximately four and one-half linear feet.

Subseries include: Informational Files, Church Government, Topical Files, and Publications. The contents of these subseries are similar to those of St. Joseph's and St. Matthew's previously described. Here again, the researcher will find the run of vestry minutes found in the subseries "Church Government" to be most informative about the activities of the church in the 1970s and 1980s. Also of value is an extensive run of the church's Sunday bulletins since the 1971 merger.
