“The most costly and beautiful
communion cup in America”

Mrs. Wiley, was the wife of Capt. James Wiley of Bethlehem, PA and the daughter of the Hon. Ellis Lewis, Chief justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and a former vestryman of the Church. In her will she bequeathed to Saint James money for the manufacture of a golden chalice to be set with all her jewels and directed it be used at communion services at least 3 times a year – All Saints’, Christmas, and Easter.
