Lectionary Inserts for each Sunday of the Christian Year are now available starting with the Day of Pentecost, June 4, 2017.
The inserts are available for download from the ACNA website and can be printed locally by any congregation. They feature the Sunday readings (Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle and Gospel), as well as the appropriate seasonal greeting (acclamation), Collect of the Day, reading responses and notes on how offertory or post-communion sentences are chosen.
The Anglican Church in North America has entered into an annual license agreement with Crossways, the publisher of the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible [ESV], which permits the duplication of the inserts without any further license or cost to the local congregation. The sub-committee on Collects, Calendars and Lectionaries of the provincial Liturgy Task Force identified a graphic designer in Colorado, Catherine Hoemke of Coffee Shop Creative, to undertake the work that is eventually envisioned to include all the propers for Years A, B, and C, as well as for major feast and fasts, and all red-letter days.
“This is a wonderful development in the rolling-out of the Book of Common Prayer (2019),” said Archbishop Robert Duncan, chair of the Liturgy and Common Worship Task Force. “We hope the lectionary inserts—available both in 8 ½ x 11 inch single-fold and in large-print versions—will be of great service to both congregations and worshippers across the Anglican Church and even beyond.”
Inserts for the month of June are currently available, and more inserts will be added soon.
