Churches hold spe­cial ser­vices

Newark Post - - LOCAL NEWS -

The fol­low­ing Sun­day, churches in Ne­wark held spe­cial ser­vices to com­mem­o­rate the ar­mistice.

The Epis­co­pal Church sung the new pa­tri­otic hymn “Un­furl­ing the Flag,” while Royal San­born held a flag aloft, the Ne­wark Post re­ported at the time.

The Catholic Church hosted an evening peace ser­mon by the Rev. John N. Dougherty. Mean­while, at the Methodist Church, the Rev. Frank P. Her­son gave what the Post de­scribed as “a pow­er­ful ser­mon [that] showed this was a war for right­eous­ness waged to bring nearer the king­dom of Christ.”
