These photos are of the Rev. Dr James A. Forbes, Jr. when he visited the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew (SsAM) on March 30, 2006.
The Rev. Canon Lloyd Casson said, “The man in the red robe is the Reverend Dr. James Forbes. At the time he was the Senior Pastor of Riverside Church, a very famous church in New York City. I came to know Jim when I was the Vicar of Trinity Church, Wall Street in Manhattan.
“In this picture he is at SsAM. The occasion was the Eucharist of the Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware, which that year was held at SsAM. Dr. Forbes was the guest Preacher at the service.
“SsAM was the host of the Convention, which was held at the Riverfront and at SsAM. Many SsAM members volunteered as registrars, and other functions, and some of SsAM’s delegates presented resolutions. We were also celebrating our 10th anniversary. There were people in attendance from every parish in our Diocese, and frankly, we blew their minds. It was a Saturday. Many Delaware Episcopalians returned to worship at SsAM the following Sunday.
