How it’s done, VI

March 21, 2012

St. John's, Elora.

For those of us who like our Anglicanism straight up, Mattins & Litany is the appropriate liturgy for the first Sunday in Lent. If ever there were a day to fast from the Communion table, Lent I is it.

Unsurprisingly, the clergy of St. John’s, Elora, know this.

They receive kudos also for their minimal bulletin. Reprinting the whole service obviates the need to have the Prayer Book around, and we are well not only to have the Prayer Book, but also to use it. Page numbers will suffice, thank you.

See the service here.

    I hope their “page numbers only” approach catches on. Now I hear claims having the whole service printed out is more “seeker friendly,” because non-Anglicans just can’t be expected to find their ways in two books by page number alone.

    Not to mention their fantastic choir. Check out “Psalms for the Soul” on I-tunes.

    “Psalms for the Soul” is a Naxos album — my very favorite. This little church has one of the great — and I do mean GREAT — church choirs of North America.
