LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Lubbock's Episcopal Churches will celebrate a centennial this coming Sunday morning.  They will do so at the oldest standing structure in Lubbock, which is the little church building in Clapp Park.

Built in 1914, it used to house St Paul's On the Plains at 15th Street and Avenue O.  It was later moved to 16th and Avenue Q and now, having been fully restored, it stands as an historic landmark.  The modern congregation now worships at 1510 Avenue X. 

"We're just thrilled to have this kind centennial event," says Father Jim Haney.  "We're a little behind Lubbock," he says referring to Lubbock's 2009 centennial.  

Haney estimates hundreds of people will attend.  Two other Lubbock parishes were founded by St. Paul's On The Plains.  They are St. Christopher's and St. Stephen's Parish.
