A new website launched at EpiscopalCommonPrayer.org provides Episcopalians with opportunities to participate in the liturgical revision called for by Resolution A068 of the 2018 General Convention. Developed by the Task Force on Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision, the website includes draft documents that outline plans and principles to guide work on new liturgical texts. "We have posted our first three draft documents on the site, and we hope that Episcopalians from all parts of the church will read and comment on them," said the Rev. Dr. Nina Ranadive Pooley, vice-chair of the national task force and rector of St. Bartholomew's, Yarmouth. The website also serves as a clearinghouse of all liturgies already approved for use by General Convention.
Liturgical Task Force Survey 2020 - deadline extended to 3/24!
Liturgical leaders in the Diocese of Maine are asked to complete the first of two surveys needed by the Liturgical Task Force to fulfill their mandate.
In 2018, General Convention passed legislation to begin a process of prayer book revision, to create new resources for the church’s new day. As part of our diocesan response to this activity, Bishop Brown created a Liturgical Task Force to 1) solicit feedback on two draft documents created by General Convention’s Task Force on Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision (TFLPBR) and 2) gather information and resources being used here in Maine.
This is the first of two surveys that we will send out over the next few months. The purpose of this survey is to gather a sample of the liturgies currently in use in parishes across the Diocese. We will be sending out a second, more detailed request after we have gathered and considered information from this survey.
This survey should be completed by the person or people who are responsible for making liturgical decisions in the parish. More than one person from the same parish can complete this survey.
Please complete the first survey by Tuesday, March 24: https://forms.gle/Dxsd8uQqckozDmcE9
