Trinity Church will be host again this year for the International American Sarum Conference. I want to encourage everyone to attend this Conference — clergy, musicians, acolytes, ushers, choristers, lectors, vestrypersons, Sunday School leaders, and any and all people eager to learn about and understand the roots of our liturgy today in 2019.
Let me be very clear here. This is not a “retro church” organization that promotes “museum church”. Instead, American Sarum seeks to use the traditions and history of Anglican liturgies to help design newer contemporary liturgies in 2019. In other words, it’s about making informed liturgical decisions based on the Anglican liturgical tradition to enhance our liturgies today.
Leaders for this Conference include the recently retired Precentor of Salisbury Cathedral; the former Director of Music at Magdalen College Oxford, and the former Head of the Royal School of Church Music. People from all over the US and the UK will be in attendance.
Come learn about the tradition we all love and make some new friends in the process.
