Book(s) of Common Prayer

Sunday, April 15, 2018
The Third Sunday Of Easter
10:00 am-10:45 am


In this class, the Rev. Dr. Kevin Moroney, Professor of Liturgics at the General Theological Seminary, discusses the American Prayer Book tradition. The close relationship between the American Episcopal Church and the Scottish Episcopal Church dates back to the founding of this country and the initial organization of our Church. Each Book of Common Prayer in the United States has thus displayed characteristics that are distinct from the Church of England, yet also differing in some important ways from Scottish versions. The result is a unique Prayer Book tradition that has been forged, like America itself, from a diversity of sources.
