Christ the King!
Christ the King is the most recent feast to be added to the Church Year. It was added in 1925 to stand against the dangers of secularism, but in the disastrous liturgical changes of the 1970s, the Roman Catholic Church moved to the last Sunday in the Church Year (the Sunday before Advent.) Traditional Anglicans did not move the celebration; we kept it on the last Sunday in October (the Sunday before All Saints.)

When was the last time you invited someone to come with you to Church?

All Saints’ and All Souls’

It is the ancient Christian tradition that we pray for the whole Church, those of us alive on earth now and the faithful departed.

On All Saints’ Day we remember the countless saints just as the Book of Revelation pictures them constantly praising God (the Church Triumphant), and on All Souls’ Day we remember those of our family members and loved ones who have preceded us into the Church Expectant.

Because not everyone can attend the Mass on November 2nd, we will repeat the names on Sunday, November 4th, the Sunday in the octave of All Saints’.

For your convenience there are two ways to submit names of family members and loved ones to be read on All Souls’ Day and again on November 4th: Simply fill out a card at church on Sunday and drop it in the collection plate or hand it to the Vicar. Cards will be located on the narthex table through Sunday, October 28th. The second way to submit your name is by emailing Father Richard at So the list can be prepared in time, please email no later than Monday, October 29th.

Special Coffee Mugs
Mugs commemorating the historic synod last fall are still available. As our bishop pointed out at his last visit, being in full intercommunion makes us already one church sacramentally. I’ll be ordering a few of these soon, so let me know if you want one. They’ll run $10 plus shipping.

In another step toward unity, we four jurisdictions that are in intercommunion now will share a common calendar. I have ordered a couple of these for the sacristy and office, but if you want one for home, the address from which to order them is the Anglican Parishes Association at Their bookstore has a number of things you may be interested in, so browse around.
