OFF TO TEXARKANA FOI CHURCH DEDICATION Rt. Rev. Bishop Mor;is, accompa- nied by many of the local clergy, will leave Little Rock on Saturday for Texarkana. Several of the laity inter- ested in the work'of Rev. Dr. Claren- don and his people in the Texarkaa parish qmve signified their intention to be present. On Sunday morning the new St. Edward's church will be dedicated with pontifical ceremony, the Rt. Rev. Bishop officiating. This is an unusual feature to have a Solemn Pontifical Mass other-than in the diocesan cathedral, ad the Texarkana congregation has a most pleasing anticipation of the grand event. Rev. Dr. Oliver B. Clarendon and his people will offer for dedication, one of the finest churches in the die, cese, complete in most every detail, nd of an excellence in architecture, construction, decoration and furnish- *.' ings. The main altar, the sanctuai'y rail Iand the large organ are of surpass- ing worth and artistry, probably be- yond that of any church in, Arkansas. Nothing has been left undone by the pastor and his good people of St. Edwards to make Dedication Sunday at Texarkana the great diocesan event of the year.
