Oxford Consistory
Written by Mrs. Susie Marshall

"Nolia Banks had a vision 21 years ago to put in motion having a banquet to raise funds to remember the shut-ins at Christmastime with baskets of food, fruits, and etc. This remains intact. Mr. Banks' motto was, 'where there is no vision people will perish' (Proverbs 29:18). 'Each year we have tried to keep this dream alive,' stated Reverend Arthur Gerod, C.C.

The Oxford Consistory came into being on November 7, 1945."
