Former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, the Rt. Rev. Frank Griswold, died on March 5, 2023. Frank Tracy Griswold III was related to the Rt. Rev. Alexander Viets Griswold, who was significant to the history of Christ Church Guilford: “The townspeople of the village of Algiers decided in 1817 to erect their own house of worship, and the Episcopal faith was adopted following an impressive visit to the area by Bishop Griswold.”
We extend condolences to the family of Bishop Frank Griswold and give thanks for the witness of Bishop Alexander Griswold.
