Chalice is a Copy of One From the St. George’s Church Museum

The chalice used for Communion on November 6 was given in loving memory of Frederick William Schwarz by his wife, Jane in 1975. It is sterling silver and number 43 of a limited edition. This chalice is a copy of one given to Francis Asbury by John Wesley in 1785. The original is on display at the Museum of the historic Old St. George’s United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, the oldest house of continuous Methodist worship in America. Covenant’s chalice is heavily embellished and was too deep and the grape juice leaked out. However, it was returned to the maker and corrected.
