Exhibit to reveal history of Episcopal Church in NC

From North Carolina-

The community will have a chance to learn more about the 200-year history of the Episcopal Church in North Carolina on Sunday when an archivist from the state’s diocese visits St. John in the Wilderness in Flat Rock.

Archivist Lynn Hoke will present her Bicentennial History Exhibit in the church’s parish hall located beginning at 3 p.m. The project is part of the celebration of the bicentennial of the Episcopal Church in North Carolina.

Hoke’s presentation will focus on the results of her 10-year study of the growth of the church in North Carolina and will include 10 vinyl panels featuring some of her research.

“There are a lot of pictures, ten placards documenting from 1817 to where we are now,” said St. John's Rector, the Rev. John Morton. “It shows us better where we fit in the big picture. It ties us in and I like that.”

There are three Episcopal dioceses in the state with 243 yearround churches and 83,000 parishioners.
