Decently habited, C

January 4, 2013

FOR our 100th installment, the Bishop of New York, the Dean and Chapter, and others of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, circa 1965.1


The Dean and Chapter and an assistant minister move up through the Great Choir.

A new canon makes his oath, the Dean kneeling beside…

…and is installed.

A new chorister receives his Psalter from the Bishop.

At the Advent ordination of priests:
1. The signing of the Oath of Conformity.

2. The Litany for Ordinations.

3. The laying on of hands.

4. The Holy Communion, celebrated ad orientem.

The Bishop administers the Sacrament to a newly married couple.

In 1954, the Bishop escorts HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

In 1961, at the service in memory of Dag Hammarskjold, the Honorable Henry Cabot Lodge, who gave the address, is escorted by Canon West. The Honorable Dean Rusk, Secretary of State of the United States, and Lord Home, HBM Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, follow the verger.

In 1962, the Bishop leads the memorial service for Eleanor Roosevelt.

At Morning Prayer & Holy Communion, Canon West administers the Sacrament.

In St. Ansgar’s Chapel, the liturgical day ends with Evensong, just as it should.
