Burial  Ground Restoration Initiative: 

A committee of Parishioners and community members restored this sacred and historical site  (see the Newburyport times article at http://www.newburyportnews.com/news/religion/in-the-spirit-alive-with-a-mission-at-first-parish/article_88a7468c-47c1-59b0-9373-49b3f146ad93.html .In addition to mowing, stone cleaning, tours, and stone stabilization, the committee received a grant from the Newbury Cultural Council and has almost completed the repair of broken fencing with this grant money (see below pictures) .  Assistance and donations to support the church’s efforts are always welcome.
