On March 22nd, 2012, in the Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin, Nashotah House launched a five-part series commemorating the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Dean Limehouse, the Dean of the Cathedral Church of the Advent, Birmingham, Alabama, gave an invigorating sermon on living lent with the Book of Common Prayer. Afterwards, students, priests and townsfolk headed for the library where original copies of the 1662 were on display. Champagne bottles were popped and many toasts were given. It was a solid kick-off to the series!
Also, just a reminder: Stay tuned for updates on forthcoming events, and know that we would love to meet you! All events are open to the public, free of charge, and include displays of original manuscripts of the Book of Common Prayer (1549, 1552, 1559 and 1662) and other historic Anglican texts. All are welcome!
