In Pittsburgh Episcopal Church of the Nativity has three reasons to celebrate

Posted by Kendall Harmon

It's a year of anniversaries for the Episcopal Church of the Nativity in Crafton.

On Sept. 13, the congregation will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its church; the 25th anniversary of the Rev. Scott T. Quinn, rector; and the 10th anniversary of organist Dianne Peebles.

The celebration already is under way.

It began with the donation of a desk that belonged to Charles C. Craft, the founder of Crafton and the proprietor of the original and present locations of the Church of the Nativity.

The desk, donated by Glenn Walters Jr., great-grandson of Mr. Craft, is being added to the collection of antique furniture that belonged to the Craft family. It is on display in Craft Hall of the church and serves as a connection to the church's past.

"It's the center of our celebration," said Jim Perrin, a parishioner of the church and weekday organist.

Thanks for posting this.  I don’t believe there is a priest of our diocese more widely respected than Scott Quinn, and his long and faithful pastoral ministry at the Church of the Nativity has been and continues to be a gracious gift.
