PARISH MAGAZINE JUNE, 1908. PAN ANGLICAN SYNOD. The great event which overshadows all others in the history of our Church dur¬ ing this month is the Pan Anglican Con¬ gress, which will be held in London dur¬ ing this month. The work of the Con¬ gress will be again brought before our congregations, but we desire to lay special stress upon the Thankoffering which is asked for, to be presented in St. Paul's Cathedral on St. John the Bap¬ tists day, June 24th.
