But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. (I St. Peter 3:15)
“Be prepared” is the motto of the Boy Scouts. We, as Catholic Christians, also need to “Be prepared.” As St. Peter instructs, we need to be ready to answer those who ask us why we believe what we do. If we are honest with ourselves, can we provide those whom we encounter a clear understanding of our faith? So many are in despair and need the Good News of the hope we possess in Christ Jesus. The information in this section will help you learn some of the basics of the Catholic Faith in the Anglican tradition.
This is a growing collection of educational resources in the Anglican faith. It shares the works of some of the best priests, scholars and authors, both current and throughout history.
A great debt of gratitude is owed to Father Stephen Scarlett of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church in Newport Beach, California, for much of the content in the “Teaching the Faith” portion of our website. Also, Father Yates Greer, assistant priest at St. George’s, crafted a beautiful work, The Liturgy of Holy Communion, from the Book of Common Prayer with Commentary. Excerpts of this work can be seen under the “Education” heading. The complete commentary can be purchased and eventually downloaded, via purchase through PayPal.
While many priests have primers on the faith to teach their flocks, it is rare to find the above two resources so user friendly. These two works offer a concise compilation of the essentials of our faith and makes for a fabulous resource.
May the Grace of God stir up our hearts to learn and live what is in these pages, so that we might enkindle all afire with the love of Christ.
