Philander's Feast Day

In addition to the usual saints and martrys, the Episcopal Church also encourages the remembrance of people who led lives worthy of emulation. For example, on July 19, the anniversary of Seneca Falls Convention, the church remembers Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and Sojourner Truth.

Today, we remember the < Martyrdom of St. Wasilides, but that's not all. Thanks to the 2003 Bishops' convention, today we celebrate the life of Bishop Philander "This will do" Chase, too. Happy Philander's Pheast Day to all!
