Chapel of the Cross, the successor
to the church for which Chapel Hill
was named, will be celebrating the
150th anniversary of its founding.
The downtown church, which has a
strong and historical affiliation with
the University, will commemorate the
anniversary with various festivities
throughout the year.
"It is a wonderful opportunity for us
as a parish to celebrate a long ministry
... in the community, and that ministry
has been tied to the University from
the beginning," the Rev. Stephen
Elkins-Williams, rector of Chapel of
the Cross, said Tuesday.
Chapel of the Cross is the successor
of the New Hope Chapel, an Anglican
chapel of ease that provided a haven of
worship and rest for wayfarers in the
town in the early 1 8th century.
The log-cabin-style chapel was lo
cated near the present location of the

chaplains, former parishioners and
members of the community are in

pointed to organize the festivities.
Formerchurch members and clergy
will be recognized at the homecoming
service, which will be followed by a
luncheon at the church, Duguid said.

Board approves proposal
to change visitation policy
By Shannon Grownover
Housing Advisory Board members
approved a draft proposal Tuesday to
change the University's visitation
s The proposal would allow on-cam-pus
residents to choose on a floor-by-floor
basis from three visitation op
tions. The policy now must be ap
proved by the Residence Hall Asso
ciation, housing officials and Donald
Boulton, vice chancellor for student
s If the policy is approved, it prob
ably will not go into effect until spring
1993, said Nick Franzese, advisory
The proposed changes weren't ap
proved at the April 7 board meeting
because some members asked why a
stronger roommates' rights policy
wasn't included as part of an option
that would allow unrestricted visita
tion. Franzese said he had informed the
visitation 'committee of the board
members' concerns about roommates'

tals plan to construct a new three-story,
bu ilding 750 feet from the reserve, which
is home to many rare species of plants
Peter Todd, a Chapel Hill resident
and representative of the Research Tri
angle Sierra Club, said that the Univer
sity could have made the building less
dangerous for birds by soliciting advice
from the community during the design
phase but that they waited instead until
after the design was finished to ask for

church, focusing on the church's rela
tionship with the University. In addi
tion to local clergy, two former minis
ters will be in contact with the discus
sion via telephone feed-in lines, Duguid
said. The discussion will be videotaped
for future reference.
A second service of thanksgiving,
which will focus on the 150 years of
ministry to the University, will be held
Oct. 1 1 and will be followed by a lun
cheon. During the fall and winter months of
this year, the parish "intends to assess
the possible effects of long-range soci
etal trends in the community and coun
try on its ministry," according to a state
ment released by the church.
Fall and winter also will provide the
congregation with the opportunity to
make recommendations that they feel
would give the church a good direction
in the future of its ministry.
A videotape of the events of the May
celebration weekend also will be shown
at the church on Oct. 1 1 . This historical
record will be available to anyone want
ing a copy, Duguid said.
The parish will be dedicated to the
town's future ministry May 16, 1993, at
a ceremony that will culminate the cel
ebrations. Developing an in-depth history of
the church is the ongoing project of the
church, Duguid said, and eventually the
information will be released in hard
New Hope Church, which was ne
glected for many years after the Ameri

The Episcopal parish was reorga
nized, renamed Chapel of the Cross and
moved to its present location on Franklin
Street in 1842by William MercerGreen,
the University chaplain for the church
and a University professor of logic and
rhetoric, Elkins-Williams said.
The original chapel, built with bricks
made on Green's plantation, was under
construction for six years because of
insufficient funds, he said.
"Suspicions are that he provided a lot
of money to finish it," Elkins-Williams
Early associations linking the church
to the University include Kemp

does have the right to ask another

members thought the draft adequately
made a statement in favor of room

The draft states that "in all cases, a
roommate's rights take precedence

to make the design safer for birds by
studying articles on the subject and con

reduce the impact on the bird popula

that birds won't fly into the building.
