“For bells are the voice of the church; They have tones that touch and search The hearts of young and old.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Pen and Ink sketch of Saint Gabriel’s Episcopal Church in Marion. MA.  The current Chapel was consecrated in 1900. The patron saints name is said to have originated in a storm at sea, when Admiral Harwood called upon the Angel Gabriel for deliverance. He promised to build a church in Marion, which subsequently became St. Gabriel’s. Pigma Micron Black Pens in a Stillman and Birn Alpha Series Sketchbook.

    St.Gabriel’s is a beautiful church. My aunt was a member and her memorial service was there. Thanks for the memories.

    Linda – St. Gabriel’s is beautiful from the outside. I have not had the pleasure of seeing the interior.
