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.
