Anglican Vestments & Clericals Explained.

Anglican Vestments and Clericals Explained.

Adapted from various sources by The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Corston


Recently I had opportunity to speak with a couple of our clergy about the vestments they were wanting to wear but weren't sure if they were correct in doing so. The Archdeacon has asked if I might put together a brief paper explaining our use of and proper protocol in the various vestments (robes) we were in our Anglican liturgy.

One Step in Front of The Other

In His final hours, Jesus dedicated himself to be with His friends and to prepare them for the events that were about to unfold.

Invited - Video Series - Exploring Genuine Christian Invitation

Invited logo

 

 

Invited is a written resource intended to be used by groups and communities to help

foster conversation about and exploration into the breadth and length and depth of

invitation.

Invited came out of a working group called Spirit of Invitation within the Diocese of

Toronto that was tasked with exploring new ways of encouraging Anglicans to be more

invitational. You might say that we’re a group of people who stumbled upon an exciting

idea. The Spirit of Invitation team is a diverse group of about 10 people from all kinds

of different backgrounds, ordained and lay, working together to explore the concept of

invitation. The group is co-chaired by Jeff Potter and the Rev. Canon Mark Kinghan.

Some friends of ours – the Rev. Canon Susan Bell, Canon Missioner of the Diocese of

Toronto, and the Rev. Dr. Judy Paulsen, Professor of Evangelism at Wycliffe College –

co-authored the written resource.

Invited is also a series of short films. Scripts for each of the videos were written by

Jeff Potter and Nate Wall. And Nicholas Bradford-Ewart, award-winning filmmaker

extraordinaire of Farmer Vision Media, adapted our scripts and helped us to put the

videos together.
