MARINETTE — St. Paul’s Episcopal Church celebrated St. Paul’s Day, June 26, with an after-service lunch during which they opened a time capsule that had been placed in the church July 31, 1966 during a building renovation. The capsule had been removed in 2002 during another renovation but had not been opened. George Sporie, senior warden and Joyce Bauman, St. Paul’s oldest member, opened the time capsule.
Inside was a Bible, a prayer book, a wooden cross and a letter. The Bible and prayer book had a note handwritten by William McGauran, junior warden and Harvey Higley, respectively. Higley was Bauman’s father, making her opening of the capsule even more special. The letter noted the church officers, building committee members, finance committee members as well as the architect, general contractor, plumbing and heating contractor and electrical contractor who did the work on the church. The church plans to add items to the time capsule and have it placed back into the church at a later date.
