Sometime during the spring of 1953, Mr. Herbert
Malloy Kyle, grandson of Mr. Archibald Hamilton Waring, saw the need of candle sticks for
the Altar. He had always accompanied his aunt, Mrs. Hannah Waring Matthews, to Christ
Church whenever it was possible for him to do so and always seemed interested in the
Church. He was most generous in his contributions and he made a pair of "brass
Eucharistic candlesticks" and presented them to the Church, which added to the solemn
beauty and sweetness of the Altar Table.
During the years of 1954 and '55 several
improvements were made at Christ Church. All the old broken and cracked window panes were
replaced by new transparent glass except the five windows in the Sanctuary in which were
put lovely Florex glass. The most important was the painting of the Church on the outside
which was made possible by the generous aid of Bishop Carruthers. The Rev. Wilmer S.
Poynor, who had always been most interested in the Church and had helped in every way that
he could for its upkeep, appealed to the Bishop for that help. Other much needed repairs
were made to the floor.
