Dear Friends of the St. Thomas of Canterbury Society,
First, a reminder of the scheduled service of Evening Prayer at St. Anslem’s Abbey this Saturday, July 9, at 4:45 p.m. Please join us if you can for the service and the coffee hour following.
I will have to miss this one, as my husband and I will be attending the Anglican Use Society’s annually conference—in Arlington, TX this year. (We should certainly have lots to talk about with the other conferees this year!) Keynote speaker is Msgr. Keith Newton, Ordinary for England and Wales. I will blog about it during the conference if I can find the time. If not, I will write a report after we return this Sunday.
For those of you who missed it, the service of Evensong & Benediction at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on June 26 was a great success. Over 150 in attendance, including a number of Anglicans from several churches in Northern Virginia and elsewhere. Below are links to three articles that have appeared since then. One note of clarification: The Catholic Online (CO) article mentions 140 attendees, which reflects the number of congregants at the service. The Arlington Catholic Herald (CH) article mentions the approximate number of Anglicans in attendance (50).

We will be holding regular services of Evening Prayer at Holy Spirit on Sunday evenings in the future. I will send a mailing once our regular schedule is confirmed.
Check our website (http://www.stthomascanterbury.org/) for service schedules, directions, and information about the STCS. I look forward to seeing you at some future event.
