Children & Youth Ministry
Let the children come to me. Dejad que los niños vengan a mí (Matt 19:4)
The Book of Common Prayer
The Book of Common Prayer is a treasure chest full of devotional and teaching resources for young individuals and adults and also for congregations, it is the main symbol of our unity and a bridge to the knowledge of our formation within the Anglican - Episcopal doctrine. As Armentrout and Slocum note in their Episcopal Dictionary of the Church, that "Anglican liturgical piety has taken root in the tradition of the Prayer Book since the publication of the first English Prayer Book in 1549."
We, who are many and diverse, unite in Christ through our adoration, our common prayer. The prayer book, last revised in 1979, contains our liturgies, our prayers, our theological documents, and much, much more.
The Holy Bible
The 39 Articles, a fundamental 1536 document of Anglican theology, relates that "Holy Scripture contains all things necessary for salvation." The Scriptures, which comprise the Old and New Testaments, as well as some apocryphal texts, were written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is of extraordinary importance for episcopal worship; During a Sunday morning service, the congregation will generally hear at least three scripture readings, and much of the Common Prayer Book liturgy is explicitly based on biblical texts. According to the Catechism, “We understand the meaning of the Bible with the help of the Holy Spirit, who guides the Church in the true interpretation of the Scriptures” (p. 853-4)
