Kit Latimer Pillars

Kit Latimer photoKit Latimer was officially a member of the Church of the Advocate for a year before her death in January 2016. But illness prevented her from ever being able to worship with us in the Chapel. Her spirit was ever present, though, in notes played on her piano, which her husband, John Latimer, donated to the Advocate in time for our first liturgy in the Chapel, Easter, 2014.

John Latimer has now designated the gifts given in memory of Kit to pay for the purchase and installation of the stabilizing pillars on the south wall of the Chapel. This is an appropriate designation, as John and Kit, each in their own way, have been stabilzers of the Church wherever they have lived for more than half a century!

Here are photos and video of the installation of the 8 inch x 8 inch x 25 ft re-purposed heart pine pillars:
