Schedule For The Eliot Ness Fest This Sunday In Coudersport, PA

Ness Family Church to Present Worship Service

Eliot Ness

It’s only fitting that Coudersport’s First United Presbyterian Church has been chosen as the site for a special gathering taking place at 11 am Sunday, July 22, during the Eliot Ness Fest. Pastors Warren Cederholm and Don Caskey will lead an ecumenical worship service that serves as a memorial to the Ness family, who were parishioners in 1956-57. The congregation of the Park United Methodist Church will join with the host congregation in this special gathering. Other area churches and visitors to town are also welcome.

The church is located at the corner of North Main and Fourth streets. (This service was previously planned for the courthouse square but will instead be held at the church). There will be 1930s themes with the messaging and music and attendees are encouraged to dress in period attire.

Eliot Ness Fest Committee members approached church leaders about the prospect of dedicating their traditional Sunday worship service to the memories of Eliot, Elisabeth and Robert Ness, thus providing an opportunity for festival attendees to see the sanctuary and attend a church service that morning. The suggestion was warmly embraced.

Pastors Cederholm and Caskey met with a local historian to gain insight into the Ness family and found plenty of material around which to develop their message.

“It’s clear from the documentation about Eliot Ness that he approached his calling in life with a dedication to service,” Pastor Cederholm noted. “He stood strong when he was put to the test and, as one of his good friends remarked, Eliot was uncompromising in his principles, even to his own personal loss.”
First United Presbyterian Church

Elisabeth joined the church while Eliot, who was raised as a Christian Scientist, often attended services with her but did not become a member.

The church’s pastor at the time, the Rev. Robert Loughborough, told an interviewer that he sensed in Eliot a man whose faith was a personal matter that was manifested in the way he lived his life and the legitimate concern he showed for others.

It is that theme and message that will be celebrated during Sunday’s service. All are welcome.
