In response to numerous requests, the Society is currently engaged in adding the French translation of the 1962 Canadian BCP to the Common Prayer Canada app. The Very Revd. Chris Dow, who chairs the app development committee, provides an update on this project.
This book is a compilation of hundreds of prayers, thematically arranged, drawn almost exclusively from the Canadian Book of Common Prayer. A review of it appeared in the Michaelmas 2022 issue of the PBSC Newsletter.
In this article, written in 2022 for the 60th anniversary year of the 1962 Canadian BCP, the Revd. Gordon Maitland, the national chairman of the PBSC, describes some unique and historically significant Prayer Books that are in his private collection.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the introduction of the 1962 Canadian BCP. The Revd. Dr. Gordon Maitland reflects on this milestone, and highlights three significant dates: March 21, September 3 and November 27.
The Very Revd. Chris Dow, now Dean of the Arctic, writes about his experiences since moving to Iqaluit, and updates us on continuing work towards making the Common Prayer Canada app available in the Eastern Arctic Inuktitut language.
Bursaries Available: The annual PBSC bursaries programme is now open. The Society offers bursaries of up to $1,000 to theological students who support the use of the BCP. The deadline for applications is November 4th, 2022.
The “Common Prayer Canada” app, developed by the PBSC and released in Advent 2020, has been a great success, having been downloaded by nearly 1,000 users as of February and receiving unanimous 5-star reviews. A major update is planned for this year.
