Pilgrim Souls

Grace and St. Paul's Episcopal Churches and their Merger

by Kay W. Bigglestone

PILGRIM SOULS is the story of the founding, growth, and transformation of Tucson's Grace Episcopal Church into Grace St. Paul's Episcopal Church. But it is more than that too. Grace Church was founded in the Arizona Territory just after Tucson became a city and just before the railroad and the University of Arizona came to the dusty town. The development of the three, the church, University, and city, are intertwined.
