Niagara Gazette — Back at St. Paul’s, even though membership continued to decline during Rev. Brewster’s ministry (1978-1991) the church undertook several major renovations of its facilities. Work was performed on church stonework at great financial struggles. Rev. Brewster served as president of the Ecumenical Task Force which was formed to address the Love Canal controversy. Later, a retreat facility, St. Paul’s Center for Creation and Stewardship, was established offering ecological education as a direct outcome of that crisis. In 1990, Dr. David G. Meade came to St. Paul’s from his position at Houghton College follow by many others.
Rev. Babcock states” Given the magnificent cathedral church on Seventh Street, a final gesture of service to the community was made when church members arranged for the Potter’s House to assume ownership. Led by Dr. Stephen Booze and his wife Celestine, we rejoice ad give thanks for the renewed spiritual presence of their members in our beloved church and city.”
