Join the congregation as Reverend Parris will lead a Puritan plain style morning service and preach the sermon that he delivered on March 27, 1692, soon after the outbreak of the witchcraft episode throughout Essex County.
Donald Friary, a Salem resident and historian of religion and architecture in early America, will appear in costume and in character as Reverend Parris.
Following the service, Friary will discuss the Puritan plain style in the service of worship, the sermon, meetinghouse architecture, and Puritan literature.
Participants are invited to bring their own picnic lunch to enjoy on the Rebecca Nurse Homestead grounds following the program. There will be a special tour of Salem Witch Trials sites in Danvers starting at 1:00pm (additional registration required).
The entire program will last between 1.5 and 2 hours.
Tickets are $20 per person. Registration is required as there are only 50 spots available.
