SILVER CITY, NM, FEBRUARY 5, 2013: Anglican Holy Trinity Church in Silver City will hold an unusual series of services and talks Sundays February 17 through March 17, 2013 starting at 3 p.m. at 209 Arizona Street. The five services will include: the Sarum Rite, which may go back as far as St. Augustine of Hippo; the 1549 King Edward liturgy from the first Anglican Book of Common Prayer conceived by Thomas Cranmer; the 1662 Anglican Missal; the 1749 first U.S. Anglican Protestant Episcopal Book of Common Prayer; and the Anglican Church of North America’s liturgy for trial use. Printed material will aid in participation in all liturgies.
Lenten bread and soup suppers will follow services, during which talks concerning Anglican history and identity will be held. The first two scheduled talks are "What the Heck is an Anglican and is it Contagious?" and "It Didn’t Start with Henry VIII!" All are welcome to attend the liturgies, suppers and talks, and admission is free.
"One way of learning about Anglican church history is to look at the way its liturgy has developed," explains Pastor Henry Hoffman. "For instance, people will see that the Sarum Rite is the basis for everything we do today."
Pastor Hoffman, rector of both St. Augustine's Anglican Church in Deming, and Anglican Holy Trinity in Silver City, is a native Spanish speaker whose congregations have been instrumental in channeling food and other material aid to Palomas and other areas of the Mexico border.
