GREENFIELD — St. Paul’s Reformed Episcopal Church has moved and is having services at Garden Chapel, 226 W. North St. The first service of Holy Communion is set for 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
The church previously met at 20 W. South St.
The chapel on North Street originally was built by St. Michael Catholic Church, with the first Mass there taking place Feb. 27, 1898. After St. Michael parishioners moved to a larger building in 1954, the building served as home to several other congregations through the years. It has been restored in recent years and serves as a wedding chapel.
St. Paul’s will use the chapel for Sunday services and other activities.

“This beautiful traditional chapel will be a good fit for our traditional liturgical worship services. The building is simple yet majestic,” the Rev. Daniel Sparks, vicar of St. Paul’s, said in a news release. “The resounding echo of the Scriptures being read and the ancient prayers of the Church ascending will provide an amplification of the important elements of our worship.”
According to the release, St. Paul’s is a mission of the Reformed Episcopal Church, a traditional denomination that worships in the pattern of the Anglican Reformers.
Sunday school takes place at 9:30 a.m., followed by a service of Holy Communion or Morning Prayer at 10:30 a.m. An adult study class meets at 7 p.m. Tuesdays.
