Published 1:00 am Saturday, September 10, 2011

St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Bolton on Sunday will mark the first anniversary of its reopening.

The church had been closed for more than two decades before community members sought to revive the church.

Last year, the Very Rev. Billie Abraham, the priest at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Bovina, began celebrating at St. Mary’s the Holy Eucharist once a quarter.
