The third Episcopal Presence at the Luzerne County Fair has had a phenomenal success thanks to the hard work of Helen and Jim Youells of Grace Episcopal, Kingston. This year saw growth in participation and fellowship, upwards of 40 lay and clergy from all the churches joined together to cover 45 hours in 5 days. Deacon Chris Sutton from Dallas, serving at St Marks in Moscow and Father Charlie Warwick also volunteered their time to join in this annual event.
Holy Cross Wilkes-Barre and their youth group were a shot of energy, St Martin in the Field bringing Welsh Cookies to give out, water bottles and wrist bands from Grace, and candy were some free offerings we had. Also free were the conversations, from people asking questions and inquiring about the churches, the people, the beliefs and traditions.
