MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Vineyard Churches …

Leave a comment

The Vineyard has about 20 houses of worship ranging from Methodist, Baptist, Roman Catholic, Episcopalian, Unitarian, Christian Science, and the MV Hebrew Center to name a few.

100_8695 The Tabernacle in the Campground (1870) in Oak Bluffs… one of my favorites.

100_6965 Trinity Methodist (1878) in the Campground

101_3509 Old Whaling Church – Edgartown (1843)

100_6967 The Federated Church – Edgartown ((1828)

100_6969 St Andrew’s Episcopal – Edgartown

100_6305 Union Chapel – Oak Bluffs (1871)

100_6974 Our Lady Star of the Sea – Oak Bluffs (1919)

100_6972 Trinity Episcopal – Oak Bluffs. All houses of worship are beautiful but some have a more perfect setting than others. Trinity Episcopal sits on the edge of Ocean Park in Oak Bluffs… from the altar you can look directly at the ocean… it is breathtaking. As a little girl I would accompany my god-mother and her sister-in-law here on Saturday’s when they’d spruce up the church for Sunday service. My job was to dust the pews. I was told this was a very important job and I took it very seriously. It was boring though so I decided to make it fun by sliding on my stomach across each row. I guess I did a good job as they always rewarded me with a ride on the Flying Horses or an ice cream cone.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. I'm also into genealogy and reading. Hope you enjoy :)
