CONGREGATIONAL CHURCHES OF MASSACHUSETTS
ONE HUNDRED FIRST ANNUAL MEETING
GREAT BARRINGTON, MAY 19-21
WITH THE STATISTICS
THE BOARD OF MINISTERIAL AID
This Board had its origin in action taken by the General Association of the Congregational Churches of Massachusetts in 1868, and was incorporated by an act of the Legislature in 1869.
G. Henry Whitcomb, of Worcester, is now its president; Arthur G. Stanwood, Esq., 701 Sears Building, Boston, is treasurer, to whom all contributions should be sent.
Rev. Joshua W. Wellman, Rev. Charles B. Rice, and Rev. Edwin B. Palmer, are the executive committee.
Applications for aid should be sent to Rev. Edwin B. Palmer, at Room 609, Congregational House. A small contribution is greatly needed annually from each Church. Donations are also solicited from individuals. Should any one desire to leave a legacy in aid of the benevolent work of this Board, the following form of bequest will be sufficient :
I give and devise to the Board of Ministerial Aid, incorporated under the laws of Massachusetts, for the charitable uses and purposes of said Corporation,
No officer of this Board receives any compensation for his services. No other board, society, or organization in this Commonwealth contributes anything for the support of needy Congregational ministers. Our country gives large pensions to her needy soldiers. Why should not our Churches give something for “the aid, support and comfort of their aged, disabled, superannuated, or needy ministers," and of “the widows and children of such ministers" ?
