Sympathy is extended to the families of Lloyd Johnson, Claretha Grant Lewis and Clarence Cleare, Sr. These are all old-time Miamians who lived in Overtown and of course, were all graduates of Booker T. Washington Sr. High School. Cleare will be especially remembered for his inspiring tenor voice and for his special ministry of seeing that the elderly and sick received their weekly copy of The Miami Times. Joint Lenten services coordinated by Black Episcopal congregations in the community are a great way to connect with old time friends and meet new acquaintances. Next Sunday, March 3rd, the services will be held at Church of the Transfiguration in Opa-locka. The final service will be held at The Historic St. Agnes Episcopal Church on Sunday, March 17, with The Right Reverend Cornell Moss, Lord Bishop of Guyana, as the guest preacher. All roads will lead members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to celebrate their 100th anniversary in Washington, D.C. The sorority was founded in 1913 at Howard University. Local members may call Maud Newbold at 305-6358767 for more information. The Reverend Richard L.M. Barry, former rector of St. Agnes Episcopal Church will be the guest preacher at St. Patricks Episcopal Church in West Palm Beach on March 13 as they observe their 100th anniversary. An invitation is still extended to interested persons to travel with members of St. Cecelias Episcopal Church Women Chapter of St. Agnes Episcopal Church during the Memorial Day weekend as they journey to the historical city of Charleston on their seventeenth annual scenic bus tour.
