We were also invited to deliver formal addresses to the synod. In addition, we were accorded the honor of processing with the Archbishop of the ACC at synod Mass.

BISHOP Blesses 18th Century Bible
August 21, 2012

On Sunday at The Fort at No. 4 in Charlestown, NH, the Most Rev. Brian R. Marsh, joined Wendy Baker, Director of the Fort, Fr. Art Bennett, vicar of Christ Church, St. Johnsbury, and Deacon David Moody of the Anglican Church of the Good Shepherd to bless a beautifully bound version of the Kings James version of the Bible. The Fort at No. 4 is a living history museum which portrays colonial life on the New Hampshire frontier during the period of the French and Indian Wars (1740-1760).  Both Fr. Art Bennett and Deacon David Moody have portrayed clergymen of the period at the Fort and have conducted the Anglican service of Morning Prayer following the Book of Common Prayer of 1662 each Sunday morning for a number of years.


Recently, the 18thCenturyBibles.org, a private organization devoted to preserving the historical accuracy of the great Christian literature of the 18th century, donated to the Fort at No. 4, three leather-bound facsimiles of an 18th century Bible (1735), Isaac Watt's Hymnal (1767), and John Playford's Psalter (1697) for use in services at the Fort.  The original volumes are purchased by 18thCenturyBibles, scanned electronically, cleaned of blemishes, printed onto laid paper, and bound in tooled leather with marbled end papers. These beautiful books are then distributed to living
history re-enactors for their use.  After blessing these books for use by clergy at the Fort, Bp. Marsh said: "I hope that these lovingly made books will enlighten visitors to the Fort as to the importance that religion played in society in the decades before the American Revolution."  Ms. Baker pointed out that these volumes, if originals, would be too fragile and valuable for day-to-day use.  "By providing us with facsimile copies, 18thCenturyBibles has given us books that both children and adults can touch and read. They will be a valuable education tool in our programs."

BISHOP TO DEDICATE HISTORIC CHURCH ORGAN

 

Charlestown, N.H. -- The Right Rev. Brian R. Marsh, Bishop of the Diocese of the Northeast, Anglican Church in America, will dedicate a historic organ at the Anglican Church of the Good Shepherd at a service of Evensong on Sunday afternoon December 5th at 3 p.m. At the end of the service, there will be a recital performed by Mr. Ed Boadway, organist, and Ms. Lisha Klaiber, soloist. The church is located just off Main St. at 20 Summer St. opposite the Old Town Hall in Charlestown, New Hampshire. (Map)

The historic organ was built in 1914 by Mason & Hamlin of Boston, Massachusetts and is the generous gift of the noted organist and author, Dr. Rollin Smith of Westbury, Long Island. Mr. Boadway and Parish Deacon David Moody transported the organ  from Long Island in mid-October.  Mr. Boadway was also responsible for the repair and restoration over the last month.  He has been repairing and restoring pipe and reed organs since 1957.

Following the dedication of the organ and Evensong, Mr. Boadway will perform a number of musical compositions appropriate to the Mason & Hamlin instrument.  He will also accompany soloist Ms. Lisha Klaiber, who will sing pieces by Bach, Dvorak, and Thomas Frost. "Music is an important part of our Anglican tradition and worship," said Bishop Marsh. "We hope that the public will share our joy as we dedicate this wonderful instrument.

"Mason & Hamlin was in business from 1854 until 1930 when the company became part of the Aeolian American Piano Company. During this period Mason & Hamlin manufactured more than 250,000 reed organs.  After 1881, they began producing world-class pianos. Mr. Boadway noted that “Good Shepherd's renovated organ has one manual, seven sets of reeds, and is foot-pumped." He continued that "Mason & Hamlin was famous for the high quality of the materials that they used and their workmanship. They won many gold medals at European trade fairs and expositions during the latter part of the 19th century."

Mr. Ed Boadway is Director of Music at the United Church of Ludlow, Vermont. He recently completed 62 years of service as a church organist, missing only ten Sundays during this period and playing for more than 20,000 services. He was a founder of the Organ Historical Society, edits organ publications, and is Past-Dean of the Vermont Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Ms. Lisha Klaiber is a resident of Proctorsville, Vermont and the soloist of the United Church of Ludlow.  She is a member of the Feminine Tones choral group and currently studies with Lise Messier of the Opera Theater of Weston, Vermont.

The Anglican Church in America is part of the worldwide Traditional Anglican Communion, with members in 44 countries, and seeks to uphold the Catholic Faith, Apostolic Order, Orthodox Worship and Evangelical Witness of the Anglican tradition within the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ. The Communion holds Holy Scripture and the ancient Creeds of the Undivided Church as authentic and authoritative, and worships according to the traditional Liturgies of the Church.

Light refreshments will be served afterwards in the church parish hall. A free-will offering will be taken for the benefit of the Fall Mountain Food Shelf that serves the needy in the Charlestown and the surrounding area.

SHRAPNEL SUNDAY
Say what?
This Sunday, Oct. 24, 2020, is Shrapnel Sunday at our parishes.  Now, what exactly am I talking about?
Shrapnel is a favorite sailor's term used to describe all the loose change that we find in pockets, ash trays, purses (female sailors only), rum bottles, car ash trays, shelves above the washer, inside the washer or dryer, on the ground, on the window sill above the kitchen sink,  under couch cushions, well you get the idea.

We would like you to gather your nickels, dimes, pennies, quarters, etc. and bring them to church on Sunday. We would like you to place your spare change in the wooden churches at the entrance of either St. Margaret's Church or St. Augustine's Mission.  The change will be gathered and placed in the Father Lester York Memorial Mission Fund and will be used to support our Diocesan missions that need liturgical supplies.  We are down to a mere $100 right now and we have some needs that we would like to take care of.

So, take a look around and lets see if we can fill our little collection box churches to the rafters for the benefit of those missions in need of our assistance and they seek to proclaim the Gospel. 
Donations when collected should be sent by check to:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ-

Attached please find a general parish needs sheet for Yorkie's Closet for requests for supplies.  We have also established a new fund to purchase items for missions and small parishes in need.  The list reflects a general basic inventory for what a parish should have as part of their liturgical supplies.

To assist this ministry:

1. If you are in need of items, print out the form, complete it and send it back to me.  If the item is readily available, I will bring it to synod in Manchester.  You can mail or fax it to 207-799-3401.

2. If an item is not available, it will be sent along when we get your item in.  If we can purchase it quickly we will use available funds to supply the item.  (As of this e-mail, we have $100 in the fund).

3. If you have surplus items and wish to donate them to the Diocese, they will be gratefully accepted for other parishes.

4. If you would like to make a cash donation to this ministry, please send a check to the Fr. York Memorial Fund, care of my attention.   Funds are used only to meet supply needs.

If you need other assistance, please contact me.

I especially want to thank the Bishop for his support of this ministry and St. Margaret of Scotland Anglican Church in Conway for hosting the ministry material and the funds for our missions.

I will only bring some surplus clergy clothing to Synod and those items requested.

God's blessings and see you at Synod.

GUEST SPEAKER FOR NINETEENTH SYNOD ANNOUNCED

It is our pleasure to announce that Bishop Walter Grundorf will be the guest speaker at our upcoming diocesan synod.
Bishop Walter Grundorf Bishop Grundorf is the Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Province in America. The APA was formed in 1995 during the formative years of the Anglican Continuum. Bishop Grundorf and the APA had, in fact, been part of the Anglican Church in America for several years after its founding.

The invitation to Bishop Grundorf was extended after our Bishop's successful and collegial work with the Church of the Holy Spirit in Pepperill, Massachusetts. Holy Spirit is an APA parish under the episcopal oversight of Bishop Grundorf. Because the parish is over five hundred miles distant from the next nearest APA parish, Holy Spirit had been faced with serious challenges with regard to clergy recruitment and episcopal care. Three years ago, Bishop Grundorf and Bishop Marsh, in consultation with the parish, developed a plan whereby we would jointly shepherd this parish. Accordingly, one of our priests, Father Ted Bolduc, serves as rector of the parish. Recently, our Bishop has made episcopal visits to the parish. Bishop Grundorf and Bishop Marsh maintain regular contact regarding the spiritual needs of this particular parish.  Since this experiment in intercommunion has worked so well from the perspective of both church bodies, Bishop Marsh has invited Bishop Grundorf to join us at synod and to speak to us immediately following our banquet on Friday evening.
Such extra-jurisdictional invitations have been extended previously by several jurisdictions.  They are commonly done and are entirely appropriate. The invitation of Bishop Grundorf to speak to us does not mean that we are in formal communion with the APA. Any such formal intercommunion arrangement would require the assent of synod.
Bishop Marsh in placing the invitation in context said "This does not affect our current discussions about the Apostolic Constitution and the Ordinariates nor have any of our episcopate or parishes joined the APA.  It is an opportunity for us to reach out to a fellow continuing Anglican church body in the hopes of finding unity among those of us who have the same faith and practices. Please join us in welcoming Bishop Walter Grundorf as our guest speaker at this, our Nineteenth diocesan synod."

AUG. 30, 2010
All parishes:
As hurricane season is upon us and winter is on the horizon, parishes should develop a closing plan in case of bad weather. You should distribute the plan early and remind folks as bad weather approaches. Means of notifying parish members include:

  1. Local TV and Radio stations
  2. E-Mail
  3. Phone trees

Please develop these early and let your folks know that unnecessary travel in bad weather is nothing we encourage. If you make a decision to close, do so in plenty of time so you can get the word out.
