125 Years in Enid

125 Years in Enid

On September 17, 1893, within 24 hours of the opening of the Cherokee Strip, the Right Reverend Frances Key Brooke, Episcopal Missionary Bishop to Oklahoma and The Indian Territories, conducted the first church service in Enid by celebrating the Holy Eucharist standing in a wagon.
For the 125 years since, St. Matthew’s has represented the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement in Enid.
In celebration of this historic event, St. Matthew’s held a service in the east lawn of the Library, the original site of that first service, at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 16th.
The weather cooperated perfectly and a great time was had by all.
