Holy Angels Anglican Church

New Frontals and Pulpit Drapes are here!

Our new frontals and drapes for the pulpit have arrived. We took a few minutes to take a look at our altar in full dress to see how it would look.  We think you will be pleasantly surprised.

The flowers on the altar Sunday for Pentecost were beautiful. They were arranged by Janice Wagoner. (Photo courtesy Fr. Wagoner).

Led By His Cross

Holy Angels now has this lovely Processional Cross for use during services. It was presented Sunday, May 4 at the morning service. Our little church is growing!

The altar was beautifully prepared for service. The palms were donated by Father Wagoner's son, Joshua, who has some palms on his property. (Photo courtesy Janice Wagoner).

A New Mission!

     Holy Angels is taking on a new mission to serve the people of our area. Starting Sunday, May 5, 2013, Holy Angels will hold services at the Picayune Convalescent Center for the residents there each Sunday of the month.

     Services are being held at 6:45 p.m.

     Picayune Convalescent Center is located at 1620 Read Road in Picayune, Ms. The outreach there mirrors another one also sponsored by Holy Angels at Summerfield Retirement Center in Slidell, La., where services are held each Sunday at 1 p.m.

     People of all faiths are welcome to attend!

This new sign graces the front of the Holy Angels Anglican Church building. We hope it helps draw many new people to worship with us at Holy Angels. A team
of Father Larry Wagoner and his wife Janice, Ron Miles and Betty Lefebvre also installed the ramp rails on the ramp to the side door of the chapel to help assure safety. Shown, from left, are, Rev. Larry Wagoner, Jennifer Wagoner, Senior Warden Ron Miles, Pat Miles, Priest in Charge, the Rev. Canon John Hollister, Charlene Purdy, treasurer and Junior Warden Betty Lefebvre and Albert Lefebvre.

The New Chapel Is Open

     Holy Angels Anglican Church has moved into the new chapel next door to our old location. We are steadily working to make our church beautiful and a welcoming place. Here is the chapel before our first service there Sunday, November 11.

A Mission ...
With A Mission

     SLIDELL, La. - Holy Angels Anglican Church in Picayune - a Mission Parish of the Diocese of New Orleans - is "A Mission With A Mission." Holy Angels sponsors a sub-mission at Summerfield Retirement Center in Slidell, La.

     The new group was formed after Gloria Englehardt, an Anglican from Picayune, contacted Deacon Larry Wagoner and asked whether it would be possible to have communion brought to Summerfield.

     It turned out that there were several people at Summerfield who wished to receive communion regularly - and so the Summerfield sub-mission was started. The group meets weekly on Sundays at 1 p.m. and is served by Deacon Wagoner and Father John Hollister on a rotating basis.

     Services there are a blessing - as the smiles of the folks there attest.


Anglican Services In Picayune, Ms.

Our Altar
is reflective of the traditional form of worship we use. The Chalice is a simple golden cup with a Celtic Cross on its base. The Paten is a matching piece. The Altar Linens are adorned with the red Celtic Cross - the symbol of our church. We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer for our services.  We invite anyone interested in traditional Anglican worship to join with us at services at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning. 

Bishop Visits Holy Angels

Recently the parishioners of Holy Angels Anglican Church were honored to receive Bishop D. Presley Hutchens, Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of New Orleans, who performed a Confirmation and Episcopal Blessings of the chalice, paten, altar linens and sanctus bells of the new church.

God did not need to send a thunderbolt to inspire the congregation.  He sent Bishop Hutchens, who has a loving demeanor, a soft voice and open hands.  Bishop Hutchens reminded us that all peoples of all color, creed and origin are welcome in our church, and that we must always keep Christ in our hearts and follow His teachings.

Holy Angels is a newly-formed Anglican Mission Church here in Picayune, which holds its collective arms open to everyone who needs solace, love and wants to worship Christ. 

About The Anglican Catholic Church

The Anglican Catholic Church is part of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, faithfully continuing the Anglican tradition. We practice and uphold the historic Catholic Faith, Apostolic Order, Orthodox Worship, and Evangelical Witness of the traditional Anglican Church.

Today the Anglican Catholic Church is a worldwide body. It has churches in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, Haiti, and South America. In 1984 the historic Church of India (Anglican) was received and constituted as the Second Province of the Anglican Catholic Church.

What We Believe

We believe in the One, Holy, Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved, and that most holy name is Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth. We believe that only through Him is the full revelation of God given to man and that we have the awesome responsibility to preach the Good News of salvation to all nations and tongues.

We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the authentic record of God's revelation to man and is a revelation valid for all men and all time. In the Bible we have God's revelation of Himself, His saving activity, and moral demands. We believe that all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (2 Tim. 3:16).

The Affirmation of St. Louis

The Affirmation of St. Louis was adopted by those Anglicans meeting in St. Louis in 1977 as a statement of principles to guide them and others in the establishment of the new Anglican jurisdiction. As such, it is a foundation document of our Church.
