On Sunday, June 12, Bishop Scott Mayer visited St. Mary’s, Hillsboro, where his uncle, the Rev. Harry Mayer, had been vicar.
Bishop Mayer said that in the mid-1980s, he visited Hillsboro several times to see his Uncle Harry and Aunt Flo in the vicarage. He was very fond of Harry. They shared an interest in baseball, the beach in Galvaston, and The Episcopal Church.
Before Bishop Mayer went to seminary, his uncle gave him a substantial part of his theological library, which the bishop uses “to this day.” It was very meaningful for him to return to St. Mary’s on an episcopal visit.
After the service, the bishop and most of the congregation gathered for lunch at the nearby home of David and Roberta Skelton.
