The Annual Calvary House Tour Carries On

Committee Chairs Loretta Smith and Nina Deutz and Tour Publicist Irene Towt step up on the beautiful center staircase of this inspired north side colonial. Great outdoor views and lovely "transitional" décor make this residence a standout. One of five residential gems on the 38th Calvary House Tour, it will be showcased in the community on Thursday, May 6th.

The "Women of Calvary" is an organization representing Calvary Episcopal Church in Summit, NJ. Our mission is dedicated to encouraging fellowship and opportunities and to strengthen our commitment to people in need within our parish, our community, and our world.

The Calvary House Tour-now in its 38th year-is looking forward to another success story. The annual Tour allows us to continue financing our outreach efforts to those who are in need in our community and surrounding areas. It is an event that is worth noting on your May calendar.

It provides an opportunity to view five distinctive homes that showcase great style, design trends, and fine taste in some of our community's loveliest residences. Originally conceived as the Maytime Festival of Homes-and currently known as the Calvary House Tour-the 38th annual event promise interesting decorative ideas, colorful surprises, and lots of style and creativity that offer inspiration for budding self decorators.

The proceeds from the event will support outreach efforts through Calvary Episcopal Church. Recipients that have received support from the House Tour include:
