Edward Lydston Bliss — medical missionary to China 1892-1932.

On Sunday October 8, 2017  we had a visit from Anne Bliss Mascolino.  Many at Central knew her father, Edward Bliss, Jr., and many of us have heard of her grandfather, Edward L. Bliss, M.D., who was a missionary in China from 1892 – 1932 and was among the founding members of Central Congregational Church.   During our worship service Anne shared stories from her recent trip to China where she met with people who remember her grandfather’s service in their village.
