Overview

This long-awaited companion volume to Howard E. Galley’s classic The Ceremonies of the Eucharist provides clergy, liturgical assistants, and altar guild members with clear, step-by-step guidance for the liturgies of Lent and Easter. In addition to background material for the traditions and theology of each season, Mitchell includes specific preparations and instructions for each liturgy of the paschal cycle—Ash Wednesday through Pentecost—as well as Tenebrae, the Way of the Cross, the Vigil of Pentecost, the liturgies of the catechumenate, and the chrism mass. He also provides helpful ideas for how the often complex liturgies of these seasons can be done simply and well by small congregations. Based on the liturgies of The Book of Common Prayer and the latest edition of The Book of Occasional Services, this ceremonial guide also draws on the paschal liturgies of other Anglican traditions, including those in Canada’s Book of Alternative Services.

Editorial Reviews

Church Of Ireland Education
Leonel is one of the foremost Anglican liturgists and those who heard him lecture at his beloved Seabury-Western Seminary in Evanston, Illinois are richly blessed. Anyone wanting to know the origin and the raison d’être of any action or symbol will find their answer here.
Anglican Theological Review
This volume is a companion to the late Howard E. Galley’s The Ceremonies of the Eucharist: A Guide to Celebration. . . . Galley’s work is virtually essential for anyone involved in planning and executing eucharistic and baptismal liturgies. Professor Mitchell has done an equal service in writing this companion volume, which he dedicates to Galley. . . . Like Galley, Mitchell explains the whys and wherefores of his directions and suggestions, which allows the reader to evaluate, select and (important in a parish context) explain the reasons for celebrating in a particular way. . . . The greatest value of the book is the pastoral wisdom Mitchell offers. For all his historical knowledge, what he says is always directed to the present day; despite the fact that his career centered in a seminary chapel, his concern here is always with the diverse range of Episcopal parishes.

Richard B. Gilbert
In this instant age we find ourselves in, we find it more familiar to mark what we do by the yardstick called experience rather than [by] substance and meaning. For ALL Christians, these days and the events that surround them are the heart of what it means to be a Christian. These are the ‘high holy days,’ and this book will help congregations, worship leaders and individual members rediscover what this faith tradition is all about.
