Second Colloquium on Common Prayer

by

The first of two colloquia to be held by the Society this year took place in Dallas in January under the theme: Stirred up to Godliness the Daily Office in Anglicanism.

This was held in partnership with the Church of the Holy Cross on January 20th, where we were kindly hosted by the congregation and the Rector the Revd Fr George Willcox Brown. It featured presentations and discussions exploring several dimensions from the historical to the practical and concluded with Choral Evensong at 4.30 pm.

The Bishop of Dallas,The Rt. Revd. Dr George Sumner joined the proceedings for the luncheon along with Bishop Anthony Burton of the nearby Incarnation Parish and the Bishop Emeritus, James Stanton.

The Prayer Book Society President, the Revd. Fr. Gavin Dunbar explored the Daily Office from an historical perspective through the history of Anglicanism up to Prayer Books of the 20th Century in North America (including that of 1928 in the USA and 1962 in Canada).

What We Do

The Society exists to promote Anglican belief and worship as expressed in the Common Prayer tradition and Angli­can formularies since the first Book of Common Prayer of 1549, in the Church of England, and on through the 1928 Prayer Book down to the present day: worship is at the heart of Chris­tianity and the Common Prayer tradition is at the heart of Anglican worship.
