In 1946 former parishioner of St Peter's, Theodore Witonski (Col. US Army, Ret.), painted a tryptich called "Our Lord Blessing a Soldier and a Sailor" for our side altar. In 1954, the Parish though it was 'too militaristic' and covered it with a curtain. It has remained covered for 59 years. This Sunday, November 10, we will uncover Ted's painting bless it, and honor our Veterans during our 10:00 a.m. Service of Holy Communion. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
St Peter's Church would like to invite the Seminary Community to join us and Ted's son, Peter, for this celebration. All are welcome.
The Reverend Stephen Harding Interim Pastor St Peter's Church, Chelsea 346 West 20th Street
