    Notes 
    • A Brief History of St. Peter's Church, Chicago, IL

      The founding of St. Peter's Church revolved around the energetic leadership of a young lay reader, Samuel Cook Edsall. On Whitsunday (Pentecost), May 29, 1887, he conducted the first service of an organizing group in the home of Charlotte Givins on Fletcher Street (Briar Place).

      From St. Peter's Day, June 19, 1887, until July 15, 1887, they worshipped in a store on Clark Street. Then they moved into a newly constructed chapel, a frame structure on Fletcher Street, west of Clark Street. St. Peter's Mission was organized in June 1888. During the early years, Samuel Edsall was studying for ordination at Western Theological Seminary while serving at St. Peter's.

      Rt. Rev. Samuel Cook Edsall, D. D. (1860-1917,) was consecrated as the missionary bishop of North Dakota in 1899. After his consecration in 1899, officiated by William E. McLaren of Chicago, George F. Seymour of Springfield, and William D. Walker of Western New York, Bishop Edsall spent three years in the North Dakota diocese, and then, at the request of Bishop Henry Benjamin Whipple (1822-1901,) accepted election as coadjutor bishop of Minnesota. Bishop Edsall, in 1902, became bishop of Minnesota at the Episcopal Cathedral of Our Merciful Saviour in Faribault, Minnesota. Samuel Cook Edsall, although Whipple's successor, centered his work in Minneapolis rather than at Faribault, where Whipple was buried. The Episcopal Church continued to recognize the Episcopal Cathedral of Our Merciful Saviour in Faribault as the "Bishop's Church," however, until 1941, when St. Mark's, Minneapolis, became the cathedral for the Minnesota Diocese. Our Merciful Saviour continues to function as a cathedral.
