n invitation to say the first Mass in this new chapel was extended
by the Rector to Dr. James W. Gibbolls, lornicr rector who now is pastor
of the Church of the Nativity. Due to parochial commitrnents. however,

the near future to olfcr up a Mass in the chapel which is so much a part
of his imagination and plannin .
