Sunday is For Church

[click image to enlarge]

St. Chrysostom's Episcopal Church on Hancock Street in North Quincy, began as a mission of Christ's Church in 1892. The church is named after St. Chrysostom, who was an early church father known for his preaching and deep theological knowledge. An ancient legend says that when he was a baby, a swarm of bees landed in his mouth and it was then that he received the gift of preaching. The beehive is used as a symbol throughout the church to represent not only the preacher's gift, but also for people being busy and working for the common good of all; not a bad thing in today's world.
