Closed for 17 years,
St. Jude’s in Franklin
opens for prayer
The Concord Monitor
— When Barbara Burns
plays the organ at St. Jude’s
Church in Franklin, she
thinks about her mother
singing with the church’s
choir 60 years ago.
“You can almost see
your family up here, in
the choir, teaching Sunday
school,” said Burns, 81, sit-
ting near the pulpit on her
familiar cushioned seat at
the organ during a recent
Burns, who began going
to St. Jude’s as a child,
played the organ at the
Episcopal Church faith-
fully for 46 years before
it closed in 2002. She said
her family shared a love
for the old hymns that were
In the almost 17 years
since then, Burns said she
hasn’t found another faith
community where she’s
felt the same connection.
Many of her family mem-
bers have either died or
moved away. She said she
stopped going to church
“I tried to go other
places, but they weren’t St.
Jude’s,” Burns said, wiping
tears from her eyes.
That’s why Burns was
overjoyed when St. Jude’s
opened its doors again in
“After all these years,
it just feels like coming
home,” she said.
Although the church
has not reopened in the
ofﬁ cial sense, in that there
isn’t a priest performing
the Eucharist, the church
has been open for prayer
services on Thursdays at
noon. Joe Rose, a long-
time Episcopalian and
retired businessman from
Loudon, is ﬁ lling in as a
lay pastoral leader.
Director for the Episco-
pal Church of New Hamp-
shire David Deziel said
he’s not sure what the Epis-
copal Church’s presence
will look like in Franklin
long-term, whether it will
evolve to a congregation
with a priest or not. He said
it was important to Rob-
ert Hirschfeld, bishop of
the diocese of New Hamp-
shire, to have a spiritual
presence back in Franklin.
“There’s a fairly large
population there — it’s an
area that is in some eco-
nomic distress, there are
a lot of people who have
needs from a socioeco-
nomic point of view but
also spiritually,” he said.
“There are a lot of peo-
ple in the area looking for
more meaning, more pur-
pose and a place where
they can go to explore that
and to deepen that.”
Rose said the response
from people who have
returned to the church so
far has been overwhelming.
“Three of them that
were longtime parishio-
ners of this church sat in
the pew with tears running
down their face,” Rose
said of his ﬁ rst day in St.
Jude’s. “They were tears
of joy being back in their
church. That told me that
there was a need here and
that God sent me here for a
