Bishop's staff returns to Hastings church after being passed down for 60 years

From Nebraska-

A church in Hastings experienced a homecoming of sorts Wednesday morning as part of its history heads back.

It is something that's been passed down for over 60 years, and now a bishop's staff owned by the bishop who helped build the church almost a century ago has finally made it home.

Bishop George Allen Beecher served as bishop of the Missionary Diocese of Western Nebraska from 1910 to 1943.

The staff he used while serving at Saint Marks Episcopal Pro-Cathedral starting in 1920 was returned to the church by a long line of family friends.
