Holy Cross Anglican Church In America
Holy Cross ACA was established to maintain original Anglican traditions and values using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
The Town of Webster, established in 1840, is a suburb of Rochester, NY, USA, with Lake Ontario as its northern border. Our building dates back to 1839 as a one-room school house. In 1977, we leased the abandoned school building to house our newly formed Anglican parish. The first official Sunday service was on June 4, 1978 using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, which we still revere and use today.
We are a congregation that values the church beliefs, music, and prayer in a worship Mass that encourages participation with family and friends based on the 1928 Book of Common Prayer liturgy for Holy Communion and Morning Prayer. We strive for a spiritual and personal relationship with god, interaction with each other and the community surrounding our church.
There are a variety of ways parishioners may participate in the functioning of God’s House. The Vestry is charged with maintaining the temporal aspects of Holy Cross. Two members of the elected Vestry rotate off and two new Vestry members are elected to rotate on at our annual all parish meeting in December. Each member serves for a three year term. The Sr. and Jr. Wardens are elected for a one-year term from within the Vestry at its meeting on the third Sunday in January. The Treasurer and Clerk of the Vestry are appointed for a one-year term at the January meeting of the Vestry.
The active committees are: Altar Guild, Archives, Building and Grounds, Caring, Christian Education, Finance (Chaired by the Jr. Warden), and St. Martha’s Guild.
The whole congregation is our choir, using the 1940 Hymnal. Our organist accompanies us on our tracker pipe organ, which had previously been used as a temporary organ at the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London, England (the Queen’s own church).
Following each Mass or Morning Prayer, we meet in our Fellowship Room for announcements of import, snacks or a sit-down meal. It is a casual time to meet visitors, greet friends, and build and bond with our church family.
