The Fellowship of St. Alban & St. Sergius

The Fellowship of St. Alban & St. Sergius

A meeting to launch a local chapter of the Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius was held last night at St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Arlington Texas. The meeting was attended by clergy of local Orthodox and Anglican Churches of varied jurisdictions and interested laity. Tentative plans were made for quarterly meetings at which theological papers will be presented focusing on points of commonality between Orthodox and Anglican theology, ecclesiology, etc. Meetings will be alternately held at Anglican and Orthodox facilities.

The evening’s activities began with the chanting of the Office of Evensong (Vespers) in the sanctuary of St. Mark’s Church, followed by opening remarks and discussion of the history of the Fellowship and aims of the local chapter for the future.
Especially noted by some was the relationship of the American Anglican seminary, Nashotah House, and it’s nurture of Orthodox Christian students in the days before the establishment of an orthodox seminary in America.

 I will post details on the next scheduled meeting when they are finalized. Let us pray God will smile on and prosper the filial endeavor in bringing unity and clarity among all his children in Christ our Savior, Lord and God. Amen.
