Back Next The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Fulton, Missouri  


13 September 1990:  "This then, is the odyssey of the Church of St Mary the Virgin. When Harry S Truman
predicted to Winston Churchill that his speech would place Fulton, Missouri and Westminster College on the map,
it came true in a way that perhaps neither of them could have realised. Likewise, Sir Christopher Wren could never
have imagined that one of his churches would be destroyed by fire raining down from the sky delivered by man made
machines. Perhaps even more fantastic to him would have been the thought, that once destroyed, his church would
rise again having been rebuilt piece by piece in the far off New World."
