The Altar for the second Sunday after Easter.
The flowers on the altar were beautiful.
We were blessed by Charles and Marilyn Howell joining us.

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.
