Convention OKs continued trial use of ‘Holy Women, Holy Men’
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
The 77th General Convention in Indianapolis made headlines when it approved a provisional rite of blessing for lifelong same-gender relationships (Resolution A049). But it also considered 35 resolutions on a wide range of other liturgical issues, from authorizing continued trial use of Holy Women, Holy Men to considering the best way to translate the prayer book into other languages.
The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music will continue revising Holy Women, Holy Men during the 2013-2015 triennium, in part by soliciting responses from the church, according to Resolution A051. Holy Women, Holy Men was first presented to the 2009 General Convention as a major revision of Lesser Feasts and Fasts, the church’s commemoration of various saints and occasions not included as major holy days on the calendar of the Book of Common Prayer. The new version, which added many new commemorations to the church calendar, was in trial use during this triennium. That status will continue during 2013-2015.
