BLOG POST 1How Do Traditional Anglicans Worship?
In worship, we use the Book of Common Prayer, 1928 edition. This edition contains prayers and affirmations of faith dating to the beginning of Christianity, as well as the traditional Anglican/Episcopal liturgy. This liturgy has been in continuous use since it was first published in 1549.Posted by The Reverend Ernie Pinto, SSA
BLOG POST 3Bishop Chad's Blog
PhilOrthodox is a site that is dedicated to the traditional Anglican expression of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We profess the orthodox Christian Faith enshrined in the three great Creeds and the Seven Ecumenical Councils of the ancient undivided Church. We celebrate the Seven Sacraments of the historic Church. We cherish and continue the Catholic Revival inaugurated by the Tractarian or Oxford Movement. Universality, Antiquity and Consent.
BLOG POST 2Receiving Holy Communion
We adhere to the practice of individuals being confirmed by a Bishop in the Apostolic Succession before receiving Holy Communion. This practice in Anglicanism is a balance between catholic and reformed teaching and is Scripturally based partly on St. Paul's words in I Corinthians 11:29, "For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself." (1 Cor 11:29; RSVCE)Posted by The Reverend Ernie Pinto, SSA
