InterFaith Calendar: Anglican Christianity

This excerpted content is from previous Connections InterFaith calendars
© 2005-2008 Chicago Center for Cultural Connections

The Churches of the Anglican Communion uphold and proclaim the Catholic and Apostolic faith, based on the creeds and scriptures, interpreted in the light of Christian tradition, scholarship, and reason. Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Churches are committed to the proclamation of the Good News of the Gospel to the whole creation.

By baptism, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, a person is made one with Christ, and received into the Church.

Central to worship for Anglicans is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist (also called Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper, the Mass). In this offering of prayer and praise are recalled the life, death and Resurrection of Christ, through the proclamation of the Word and celebration of the Sacrament.
