William Hobart Hare

Today is the feast day of William Hobart Hare, missionary bishop of the Episcopal Church, who was born on this date in 1838.

Son of a vicar, he became one himself until his mission work began in what is now South Dakota. His work among Native Americans and pioneer settlers led to his moniker as “Apostle of the West.”

Holy William Hobart Hare, pray for us.
