Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Solurday, April 21, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 39 Donald the Arctic erected his own mission building By JOHN LeBLANC TORONTO (CP) As a young salesman in England, Donald Marsh hoped to be- come a missionary in the warmth of Africa. He ended up selling religion to the Eski- mos and was Anglican bishop of the A-ctic for the last 22 years of his life. Ironically, after undergoing hardship and danger for 19 years among the natives of C a n a d a 's North, Bishop Marsh fell victim to an auto- mobile accident in England at the age ot 69. He died in a London hospital in February, four months after being in- jured while on a missionary- recruiting trip. Signing himself Donald the Arctic but known to the Eski- m o s as Ishagayoouktrak, Bishop Marsh was a familiar figure to thousands of Eski- mos over the 2.75 million square miles of his diocese, which he traversed first by dogsled and later by plane on an annual tour from the bishop's seat in To- ronto. During his missionary years that began in 1926, he ac- quired a fluency in the Es- kimo tongue and a love for the Eskimo way of lite. And his British-born artist wife, who set up housekeeping with him in 1933 on the west coast of Hudson Bay, taught the na- tives and becaina a noted il- lustrator of them and land. Created mission The future bishop was ssll- ir.g produce in London's Cov- ent Garden market when he got the missionary urge and he offered himself to the Church Missionary Society for service in Africa's Gold Csast. Bui it had no need for evan- gelists there, so later he vol- unteered for missionary work in Canada. After graduation from Em- manuel College in Saskatoon, he arrived as a deacon at Es- kimo Point accompanied by a pile of lumber from a demo- lished RCMP barracks trans- ported by schooner from Churchill, 180 miles to the south. Later, an Arctic cathe- dral built under his auspices as bishop was to have its ma- terials ferried by helicopter. Mr. Marsh knocked the j lumber together into a mis- j sion from which he dispensed religion for 30.000 square miles, inhabited only by Esid- j mos and a few whites in the Hudson's Bay Company trad- ing post. Besides his carpen- I try. he could also run a boat and acted as dcctor. electri- i cian, painter and school- teacher. i The country was flat and j windswept and bitterly cold, dropping to 60 below in win- j ter. If it went above 40 in I rummer, that was a warm J sp-ell. The deacon ordained a priest in around by clog team with Eskimo guides. Occasionally he was lost for a rlay or more in ste.-ms. but the Eskimos always found their destination eventually. Became bishop It was at Eskimo Point that he picked up his native name, j The short, bespectacled mis- sionary did a lot of reading in j the dim northern light, so he i was called "the little one who peers."

Once in 1963 when he was flying to a confirmation service in a ski-equipped plane, the weather closed in and the plane almost bounced off a small were eyeball to he com- mented sitting down on the ice of Deception Bay Inlet to wait it out. For three days the parry ate steaks sizzled on a shovel over the p 1 a n e 's engine warme: and they arrived at Sagluk on Hudson Strait for the service just as a search plane flew overhead. Robbed Bishop Marsh was a blunt- speaking man and those who dealt with him found a per- sonality sometimes as tough as the northern permafrost when it came to discussing the white man's effect on the traditional life of the Eskimo and what should bs done for the Eskimo in the future. "He was straightforward but never an asso- ciate said. He made no bones about de- ploring the consequences of hand- he felt rabbed the Eskimo of the spirit of inde- pendence and initiative that enabled him to conquer the Arctic waste for centuries. "How do we get these peo- ple to hunt and live happily after the while man spoi's them with these giils from he once asked. However, Bishop Marsh considered it was no use moaning over the past; it was the future that must be looked at. He was particularly anx- ious about concentrating the work of the on young people. Under his administration as bishop, Anglican mission sta- tions in the Arctic almost tre- bled to 22 and a school for training Eskimo men -for the ministry was founded at Pangnirtung on Baffin Island. The bishop had hoped to see the first four graduates or- dained priests in May.

Garden tomb Tourists duster abojt the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, the site which a growing number of Christians believe to be the on? where Jesus was entombed.

Major Dorothy Burrows, the offi- cers will participate in 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. worship ot Lethbridge Salvation Army Citadel. By HAL McCLTJRE JERUSALEM (AP) Where did Christ die? The rambling Crusader Church of the Holy Sepulchre deep inside the Old City's walls is revered by millions as the site of Calvary. But a growing number ofj Christians believe Jesus was j crucified and entombed in a garden area a quarter of a mile j to the north. Christian pilgrims by the thousands will pray at both the j church and the garden tomb j this Easter week. The garden tomb has beeni winning more supporters be-j cause of its out- side Old Jerusalem's thick Tur- I kish walls. But the entire garden tomb concept appears to flout the 1.- j 600-year-old tradition of the] Church of the Holy Sepulchre. BEGAN QUEST I The original idea to pin down} the exact location of the crucifi-i sion came from Emperor Con- stantine the Great at the Coun- cil of Nicea in 325. He dis- patched bis mother. Empress Helena, to the Holy Land to see that his orders were followed. The spot finally it was disclosed in a vision to the Bishop of on the site of a pagan temple of Aphrodite built by Roman Ern- paror Hadrian 200 years earlier. It was on a hill called Golgotha, a name derived from the Hebrew for "skuU." Constantines shrines were levelled by invadng Moslems, but rebuilt by Crusader knights who reconquered Jerusalem in 1099. The knights enclosed Calvary and the tomb under the one roof of the Sepulchre Church. It is shared by the Greek Or- thodox, Roman Catholic and Eastern Rite churches. Dam- aged by an earthquake in 1927, it is still under repair. During the centuries a num- ber of pilgrims have questioned the marked sites at the Holy Se- p'ulchre because the shrines were obviously inside, not out- side, the city walls. PROMOTES IDEA But it wasn't until the end of the last century that the garden tomb idea began to tEke hold, thanks to a campaign launched by Gen. Charles Gordon of Brit- ain, who visited Jeruselm on the way home from China. Gordon was convinced that 30-foot-high hill just north of j Damascus Gate was the true Calvary. Two hollows in the face of hill made it look like a he said. He fcegan a campaign tnat j eventually led to establishment of the London-based, non-de- nominational Garden Tomb As- j sociation, which has jurisdiction over the site. The tomb, a two-room cave, is surrounded by a lush and well-tended garden, filled with i well-manicured shrubs, flowers i and tall shade I by one visitor as a "true oasis i of tranquility." Cranbrook Presbyterian Churcb opens j CRANBROOK Pres- i byterian Church congrega- tion recently commenced ser- vices in their new church building here. Constructed from pre-fabri- cated logs by volunteer labor, the building comprises a sanctuary, seven rooms for Sunday school, a hall and a kitchen. The building is lo- cated in the 2100 block of South 2nd Street A. The church session has ac- cepted the resignation of Rev. Albert Henderson, and are now looking for a new clergyman to fill the Knox pulpit. Mr. Henderson, who has served the Cranbrook congregation for the past 10 years, has resigned from the ministry. Walter Fankhauser has purchased the former church property, situated in a com- mercial area. He has preli- minary plans for an office building to be erected on the former church site. It says the government has documents proving the Roman Catholic Church wants to put the old regime back in power. The allegations are made in the party daily Zeri I Popullit (Voice of The People) and re- ported by the official Albanian news agency ATA. Albania says it is the world's first atheist state and strictly forbids any form of religious policy which the Vatican says is aimed at the to- tal destruction of the Roman Catholic Church on Albanian territory. Zeri I Popullit says the au- thorities possess church docu- ments revealing the Vatican's "attitude" during the Second World War when Albania was an occupied country.
