Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
The St. Thomas of Canterbury Society of Washington, DC and Northern Virginia (STCS) announced today that it will begin offering Anglican Use services at a second location in the Washington, DC area.
In addition to its regularly scheduled services at St. Anselm’s Abbey Church in Washington, the society will also hold regular services at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Annandale, VA, to accommodate the growing number of members from the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC.
The first service at the new location, which will be Evensong and Benediction from the Book of Divine Worship, will be on Sunday, June 26, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. The service will also include prayers for Pope Benedict XVI on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.
The St. Thomas of Canterbury Society exists to promote the establishment of an Anglican Use parish for the Washington, DC area which will become part of the Personal Ordinariate once it is established in the United States under the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus. An ordinariate was established for England and Wales in January of this year.
