ST. PAUL'S SOCIETY PROGRAM

Meetings Wednesday Evenings in Brooks House.--Activities of the Society.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

As usual the St. Paul's Society will hold its meetings every Wednesday evening throughout the College year in the Society's rooms in Phillips Brooks House. Evening prayer will be said in the Society chapel every week day evening at 7 o'clock through Advent and Lent, and a Corporate Communion will be held in Christ Church the third Thursday in each month as heretofore. A detailed list of these meetings, with speakers and subjects, may be found below. All Episcopal churchmen in the University, whether members of the Society or not, are cordially invited to attend.

The Wednesday evening meetings, held at 7 o'clock, are very informal. Shortened Evening Prayer is said. Then follows a short talk by a man especially versed in his subject. Informal discussion, usually along the general subject of the speaker's topic, closes the meeting. Three-quarters of an hour, to an hour is the time ordinarily taken by these meetings.

The Somerville Mission.

One of the most important works the Society undertakes is the St. Paul's Society Mission in Somerville. At the fiftieth aniversary dinner of the Society $3000 was pledged to combine with the church people in Somerville to erect a mission church. Plans have been made by Mr. R. A. Cram, and ground is being broken this week for the building. Mr. Dwight Hadley '12, now studying in the Episcopal Theological School, is in charge this year. The mission serves as an outlet for active interest in the form of Boys' Club and Sunday School work.

All churchmen are urged to support the St. Paul's Society by attending the meetings as often as possible and by learning what the Society stands for, and the aid it can give to them specifically as churchmen.
