HEY. 5. COLLI* HUGHES HAS RE
After serving tha congregation of
St . Paul a Church, Loulsburg. for
about thies ywai most acceptably.
Rev. N. Collin Hughes, the rector, haa
resigned In the best Interests of the
parish, as he considered it, 'and due
also to tailing health and pressing
work In hia newly established school
for boys In Raleigh. St. Nicholas
Mr. Hughes owned his residence in
Raleigh and did not wish to more to
Lonlsbnrg and become rsaldent rec
tor. but consented to serve the parish
temporarily until a resident rector
could be obtained; but he won such a
warm place In the afTectlon of his peo
ple that they from time to time begged
him to continue the arrangement un
der whlch^Jxe^ylaited the pariah for
pastoral visits and services on Sundays
only, and so the services Intended by
fcim to be temporary only have con
tinued for about three years. Mr.
Hughes had the affection and high es
teem of every one of his parishioners
and the Wardens and Vestry very re
luctantly accepted the resignation to
take efTect April 1st, 1922, yielding to
the jiecfeftsify ' of relieving the strain
lfhich was becoming too great for the
rector to bear. Sickness prevented
Mr. Hughes from holding his regular
ly appointed last service in March and
so he came down and met his people
In a last service on Sunday the 2nd of
April, and quite a l^irge number went
to the Holy Communion with him.
The entire citizenship of Loulsburg
joins the members of St. Paul's par
ish in their regrets at losing Rev. Mr
Hughes as their rector.
