The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

SAINT BARNABAS DUNWOODY GEORGIA: Holy Communion will be celebrated on Thursday 15th August at 7pm for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We are planning a fun informal social gathering in Harvey Hall after Mass, so please bring along your favourite foods and drinks and join us for the celebration!

O God, who this day didst take to thyself blessed Mary, the ever-Virgin Mother of thine only-begotten Son: grant that we who celebrate her glory may be aided by her prayers, and may come to share her heavenly and eternal joys. Through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Crisis about the Real Objective Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

Anglican Catholics believe... The Eucharist is different from all other Sacraments, in that all other Sacraments convey or communicate the grace or life of Christ to those who receive them, but in the Blessed Sacrament, we do not only receive grace - but Christ Himself. Jesus Christ is the Blessed Sacrament, for It is His Most Blessed Body and Blood, present really, truly, and objectively in and under the outward form and elements of Bread and Wine (I Corinthians 10.16-17). The Eucharist is the Lord Jesus, True God and True Man, the whole and entire Person of Christ, present in a heavenly, supernatural, glorified manner, truly present under the forms of the Sacrament. Jesus Christ is present in the Eucharist in His glorified Body and Blood, the Resurrection-Body (I Corinthians 15.44), given to us as heavenly food and drink, as spiritual nourishment for our souls and bodies, to unite us with Himself in His own incarnate human life.

Chad Jones to Lead Continuing Anglican Diocese

DEUS Synod Recap and Review at Earth and Altar

By Fr. Sean McDermott

Here at Earth & Altar, the DEUS Synod was busy and fruitful.
We had been appointed to give the plenary talks along with all of our usual duties in the services
and meetings.
Fr. Glenn spent the early part of the week on the Board of Examining Chaplains;
Fr. Mark passed his final exams for the priesthood; and I, well, I just drank a lot of good coffee.

This diocesan Synod was especially important because we elected a Bishop Coadjutor.
We only did one vote, a great sign of unity, and Bishop Chad Jones is our first Coadjutor
Bishop ever elected in the APA. Right after the election, we gave our plenary talks as well.
Over the whole week, we all sensed a great spirit of charity--
this was quite a blessing giving the important election.
I am very proud to be part of the APA: DEUS, and I look forward to the future of our province....
