Thursday nights (through October 25th) will bring a special five-week series in honor of the 350 year anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, “Our Anglican Heritage: The English and American BCP.” Each week we will explore the continuing history of the BCP tradition and how they have affected our sacramental life today. Our guest lecturer will be The Rev. Dr. Sean M. Wallace, a priest in the New York Diocese with graduate degrees in both Church and Music History and an avid BCP collector. Classes will be held in the Parish Hall from 7pm to 8pm.
