Faith and Practice by Frank E. Wilson

Faith and Practice by Frank E. WilsonThe Rt. Rev. Frank E. Wilson (1855-1944), late Bishop of Eau Claire, was perhaps the most prolific Episcopal writer of his era, authoring dozens of books geared to lay people. Over the years, his works have helped to renew the Church, encourage social and ecumenical progress, and provide guidance and insight to generations of Episcopalians.

Faith and Practice’s reaffirming message celebrates our unique Anglican way of thinking while calling us to act faithfully upon those beliefs. More than 50 years after its original publication, this timely book that explores core Christian beliefs, continues to inspire and instruct Anglicans throughout the world

The Liturgy of Holy Communion From The Book of Common Prayer

The Liturgy of Holy Communion from The Book of Common Prayer by Fr. Yates Greer

And now, O Father, mindful of the love
That bought us, once for all, on Calvary’s tree,
And having with us him that pleads above,
We here present, we here spread forth to thee,
That only off’ring perfect in thine eyes,
The one true, pure, immortal sacrifice.

(The Hymnal 1940 #189)


Good liturgical action is characterized by a sense of restraint, style; it exists to express the common needs of the family. The intensity possible in expressing individual worship is out of place in corporate worship. Each of the individuals involved in the Mass must sacrifice something of his own will, feeling, and preference; each must submit to the corporate movement of priest, attendants, and people. Liturgical worship, in its carefully crafted words (crafted over centuries,) its action, and its music shares much with a work of art.

[FA_Lite id="1382"] Oftentimes people ask, “What is the reason behind what you do?”. This clear, concise and easy-to-understand commentary on the basics of each segment of the Holy Eucharist will give you those answers.

The entire book will be available for sale at the Church Bookstore for $5.00. Please contact the church office at

A Course of Study in the Anglican Faith

A Course of Study in the Anglican Faith

Prepared by Holy Cross Church, Oklahoma City, OK

By its very nature, this is an unfinished work. That is the fate of any document attempting to set forth a subject of such depth as the Anglican Faith. Indeed, this work itself is the product of four or five major revisions. There are short-comings in it, but it should contain those essential elements that go for the forming of a Catholic Mind in the true Anglican tradition

Traditional St. Augustine’s Prayer Book

Tratitional St. Augustine's Prayer Book

Compiled and edited by the Reverend Fathers Loren Gavitt and Archie Drake, The Traditional St. Augustine’s Prayer Book is described by its authors as a “book of devotion for members of the Anglican Communion.”

The book opens with a discussion of the Christian’s obligations and then goes on to its various devotions. Prayers suitable for different times of day and occasions are followed by the order for the Mass (conforming to the Anglican Missal), the Sacrament of Penance, and the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Other useful devotions include the Stations of the Cross, various Litanies and Novenas, and meditations for the Holy Hour (sometimes called the Watch Before the Altar of Repose).

The Traditional St. Augustine’s Prayer Book comes bound with a single golden ribbon for use as a bookmark.

1928 Book of Common Prayer with the King James Version Bible and the Apocrypha

This lovely book consists of three parts: the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, the King James version of the Bible and the Apocrypha.

The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is beloved by Anglican traditionalists throughout the United States. Unlike the 1979 book that was adopted by the Episcopal Church, the 1928 BCP stands in direct line of descent from Thomas Cranmer’s 1549 Book of Common Prayer, and as such, its collects preserve the beauty Archbishop’s original prose. The Epistles and Gospels are taken from the Authorized Version (otherwise known as the King James Bible) and the Psalter remains that which has been used by generations of Anglicans throughout the world, that of the Great Bible of 1539.

The Authorized, or King James Bible, is perhaps the most influential book ever published in the English speaking world. The beauty of its language has influenced countless writers and speakers, and its phrases ring in the cultural memory of English speaking Christendom.
