The Anglican Bible and Book Society joins its voice with that of The Secker Society in encouraging Anglicans around the world to mark “Common Prayer Day” on August 24, 2012. Common Prayer Day commemorates the 350th anniversary of the publication of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer in England.
This is a historic occasion that should not pass unnoticed. The Secker Society’s Common Prayer Day Initiative recommends that parishes celebrate the heritage of the prayer book with special services. The 1662 prayer book was first used on St. Bartholomew’s Day, which occurs August 24th.
On behalf of the Anglican Bible and Book Society, I encourage you to honor this day in your parish. If you are unable to have a special service on Friday, the 24th, please consider another day this year for such a commemoration. At the least, take time to remind your parishioners of the significance of the event of the publication of the English prayer book in 1662. The Common Prayer Day website provides a downloadable version of Evening Prayer that can be used by congregations or individuals in marking this day.
