DICKENS 2016 ST. PAUL'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH DICKENS EVENTS

WELLSBORO—St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Wellsboro is offering six different activities for visitors to Dickens of a Christmas on Saturday, Dec. 3.

During the day, the church's thrift shop will be open and there will be a free Model Train Show, the Great Cookie Sale, lunch, tours of the church and the special Choral Evensong service sung by the church choir.

Between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, the free Model N Gauge Train Show, hosted by members of the Twin Tiers N-Trak Club, will be in St. Paul’s Parish Hall. Dennis Oberholtzer will also be running his S gauge trains. The entrance to the Parish Hall is on Walnut Street, across from Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital in Wellsboro.

St. Paul’s Great Cookie Sale will begin at 9 a.m. in the Parish Hall and continue until 4 p.m. or until the cookies are gone. Being sold by the pound will be all types of cookies from chocolate chip to date pinwheels to sugar cookies. There will also be other treats like white chocolate-covered popcorn.

The Thrift Shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is a great place to find a needed umbrella, sweater or hat. The entrance is on Charles Street.

Lunch will be available in St. Paul’s Parish Hall beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until everything is gone. For $3, eat a Texas hot or sauerkraut dog, plus chips and pickle. For $2, have a bowl of homemade chicken noodle, ham and bean or vegetable beef soup. A beverage - soda, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, lemonade or water - is $1.

Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., free tours of historic St. Paul’s will be given. Louis Comfort Tiffany designed the church's stained glass windows and the mosaics that are found around the altar and baptismal font.

At 4 p.m., the public is invited to attend the 40-minute Choral Evensong service in the church. Historically accurate, this service is conducted as it was by the Church of England in the Victorian-era at the time Charles Dickens lived. Included are hymns, readings and Anglican chants and anthems sung by the choir. The Church entrance is on Pearl Street, directly across from The Green.
